Capensis are dicots, the same as millions of other plants. They'll all look pretty much the same until the third leaf comes out. Again, wait for the third leaf and you'll know if it's a sundew.
Since it's a new pot, and you only sowed capensis seeds, it could be that. However, media materials can easily have weed seeds. Take a breath, read a book, try watercolor, contemplate the Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, but wait for that third leaf.
That all being said, based on the fact it's growing a stem, I'm going to say that it's a weed, not a capensis.

The typically have a structure that is labeled as a stem, but not a stem in the classic sense.
Here is a pic of a capensis seedling with a few carnivorous leaves. No "stem".

I planted sundew seeds 2 weeks ago nearly with either spagnum or peat moss with sand as a second attempt from another seller but they haven’t shown above the soil again like my first attempt at growing them.😢

Be sure to keep them in high humidity until they sprout. Generally, I put all of my starting seeds in a sealed plastic bag. Also, don't let the surface of the soil dry out at all. Keep them on the wetter sid until they sprout.
