Yes.

PPLNS works by going until a block is found. If no block is found, it just keeps going. Reward % is how much you have put into the search for this block.

Current luck is 59,202,786.60 % You shouldn't expect anything until that goes much closer to 100%

Nobody has been mining PPLNS for the coin ZCash until you started mining it.

ZCash is a difficult coin, so if nobody else joins you, you should expect that it will take a long time for a block to be found. That said, the work you already put in will cause you to be paid when a block is found, even if you don't continue PPLNS mining.

If you want to be paid immediately, you can switch to FPPS mining, which is the default, and you'll be paid for every share you find.
