I have an ISRC, and entered the information into the metadata in my track information. Does this mean that the ISRC is now embedded within that track on SoundCloud and should be be able to be recognized that way? I have put the information in correctly but the ISRC is still not working. Not showing up when I search for it. Does the ISRC already have to be embedded within the track before I enter the information into the metadata?

The ISRC of tracks on SoundCloud is for SoundCloud's use. It isn't publicly searchable unless you also add it to your track description. Similarly you can't search for an ISRC on iTunes or Spotify although those organisations have the information for their use.
So the answer to your question is yes, in a sense the IRSC is "embedded" in the track in the same way information such as whether the track is public or private is "embedded".
