I just bought 2 female guinea pigs and have everything I need for them. I am wondering how many days in should I start feeding vegetables?

Do you know if they were fed veg you yu got them?
If you are unsure then you need to build up veg slowly. One veg at a time in small amounts. Then introduce another new veg, slowly increase amounts. Basically do it all very slowly and gradually.
if you notice any soft poops or digestive upsets, then stop feeding all veg until 24 hours after poops return to normal, and then begin again slowly.

No, they most likely were not fed any vegs. But thank you. Do you think I should start with bell peppers?

I would personally probably start with herbs such as coriander/cilantro as they tend to be milder on unprepared tummies.
