Do you gain reputation for helping new users(below the rep needed for up votes to be seen)?

I'm asking because i remember there was a threshold of rep you needed for reps to 'count'.

No, you don't, unless a privileged user gives your post an upvote.
Unless new users (users without upvoting privilege) really gain that privilege their upvotes will have no effect on your posts and your reputation.
They're just notified that their votes have been recorded by the system (as anonymous feedback).

Even not if those users will gain that privilege later on.

    For completeness, askers of any reputation level may accept answers, an action that comes with a +15 rep reward. – SOLO Jun 11 '18 at 20:07
  • "votes have been recorded by the system " is a euphemism for "You need 15 reputation to upvote." – user392480 Jun 11 '18 at 20:19
  • @CommunityNoDiamond. See @rene's link. These actually are recorded. No real impact though. – πάντα ῥεῖ Jun 11 '18 at 20:22
  • It is still a euphemism. – user392480 Jun 11 '18 at 20:23
  • @community Well, the 1st rule is: Be nice! No matter how greasy that might look realizing the final conclusion. This is my today's t-shirt: – πάντα ῥεῖ Jun 11 '18 at 20:34
  • There actually is one page on the network where anonymous votes can be seen next to the question, for some specific questions. So they might have minimal influence in that they might count towards getting questions on that list, and can be seen without using SEDE. – Erik A Jun 14 '18 at 8:42
