A baby that young is not going to sleep through the night. A newborn will eat about every 2 to 3 hrs around the clock. It is very common for newborns to have their days and nights mixed up. At night keep lights low and no noise when you feed in the middle of the night. During the day try to interact a little bit with baby in between feedings. At 1 week they will be waking often, but also not staying awake for long. Their tummies are very small and can't hold much milk, so they will wake often to eat.
