So my daughter is only 1 year & 7months . shes VERY interested in using the restroom. She actually peed and pooped on her own yesterday twice . i was surprised because i never brought the whole potty thing to her attention assuming she was to little . but she told me she had peepee so i just took her to the potty and she used it. Now day 2 ..well she had 3 accidents and its been a little over an hour and she has not used the restroom at all . im just tryn to figure out how could i start this process ? Is it to early?

It isn't too early to offer the potty but it is too early to expect success. Just do what you've been doing, be casual about the potty and praise her successes. She will likely train in the next few months. If she decides she is no longer interested in toileting, let it go for a bit and then try again. Toddlers can't make a lot of choice for themsleves, but they can control when and where they go!
