My kH is extremely low. How do I raise it or is it ok to leave it alone? 1 drop turned the water blue and the next drop turned the water yellow on the kH test in my NT Labs Aquarium Lab test kit. I don't know if that means a kH of 1 DH or 2 DH.

The easy answer would be to recommend to leave it alone, but without knowing the rest of your tank make-up, bio load and how long you have it set up, that could be a dangerous recommendation. Assuming that kH will decline in the aquarium and gH will increase, the set up and make up of your tank and water would be a good place to start.
