It'll report automatically, possibly when the second one is done as well, but at least 24 hours after the first one was completed.

Boinc uploads the results immediately on completion if the Internet is available. It tries to bundle the actual reporting of completed work to ease the load on the server. Accessing the database to report a group of results only adds a small percentage of overhead more than an individual report. Boinc also ensures that work is not reported late by following a set of reporting rules as previously posted by JM7
BOINC returns work to a project at the first of:

1) 24 hours before deadline.
2) Connect Every X before deadline.
3) 24 hours after completion.
4) 60 seconds after the completion of upload if upload completes after any of 1 to 3.
5) On a work request to that project.
6) With any other reported work for that project.
7) On a trickle up to the project (CPDN only as far as I know).
8) On a trickle down request (no projects use this as far as I know).
9) On a server specified schedule (some project uses this, but not certain which).
10) On a BOINC Account Manager specified connection (only if using a BOINC Account Manager).
11) When the user pushes the update button.

Rules 3, 5 and 6 are the ones that are most commonly seen being used especially if you are attached to more than one project.
