In a new account or new campaign, all ads have to be reviewed before they're allowed to activate. Much of this process is automated but part of it is manual--it should take less thann 3 days.

 

On the other hand, there are some markets that are closely monitored--pharmeceuticals, etc.--and those ads are almost always manually reviewed.

 

If it's been less than 5 business days since this message appeared, I suggest you wait and see if the ads are approved before you take any action. (In the meantime, don't edit or change the ads in any way--each time you edit them it's the equivalent of deleting the original ad and creating a new one--and the new one moves to the end of the review line.)
