You say the queen is in the top of the top box, laying eggs... what's in the bottom of the top box? And what's in the bottom box? If there is brood, eggs, honey and pollen in both boxes, it's time to start supering. If there's only brood in the top box, and the bottom box is empty, time to reverse.

Just remember to consider the status of the entire hive, not just where the queen is. That will tell you what's going on, and what you need to do. It will also give you an indication of the quality/condition of your queen.
