A status of "pending" on a withdrawal just means that PayPal hasn't yet had the opportunity to slip the withdrawal out into the banking system.  Once it switches to "completed," PayPal will have sent the withdrawal to your bank.  All told, the entire withdrawal process can take 3-5 business days to complete (weekends/holidays don't count).
