    This can happen if your site is detected by Google before the site is made public. Use Live Test to check if Googlebot can fetch the sitemap. If Google returns "URL is available to Google", that means Google can fetch your sitemap but hasn't. You can then interpret the status as "Pending" and wait. It will take some time for your site to be crawled (days to weeks depending on the size of the site - larger more important sites will appear first).
    Before Google does crawl your site, I recommend you edit all your images to remove the default demo text, "Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference". This is caused by a Squarespace bug and, if not deleted manually, will be indexed with your site. See my post for more details.
