Macbeth isn't so amazed at being hailed Glamis because he already is Thane of Glamis. He is surprised at being hailed Thane of Cawdor because Macbeth thinks he is still alive.

The thane of Cawdor lives. Why do you dress me
In borrowed robes?

Macbeth does not understand how he can be king because Duncan is still alive and Malcolm and Donalbain, the king's sons, are in line before him.
