As a freelancer, your billing period for hourly contracts begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. Your funds are available 10 days later.
When working hourly contracts, all time logged in the Work Diary by the freelancer is automatically invoiced to the client using the schedule below.
Your funds are currently under the Pending tab. This represents the standard security hold period in which funds cannot be withdrawn.
Hourly payments are in the security period from the time the client review ends on Friday to when the funds are released on Wednesday.

We are using a weekly billing cycle.
No, you're not. You are using a weekly retainer. This becomes available to you 5 days after Upwork has successfully charged your client, so if the charge on Monday wasn't successful, the funds become available 5 days after the charge actually went through. If you go to Reports > Pending, you should see that date in the left hand column.
Remember that weekly retainer payments are not protected by Upwork's payment protection in any way.
