    Check your website's robots.txt.

    If the content is manual & unique, the website is well-structured and added to the Google search console with proper setting of robots.txt, no worries. It will be published soon.

    Thanks

    Delete the sitemap(s) on Webmaster tools and resubmit it.
    You're sure your sitemaps contains no errors?

    Check your website robots.txt may be you have blocked access to your website for search engine bots. If it is not the problem than recreate your sitemap and resubmit it in Google webmasters account.

    If you are using cpanel hosting than open your file manager and locate the public_html folder which your root folder where all your wordpress files get stored. Here scroll down and you will find the robots.txt file.
