does it matter how many turns of string you have on the headstock tuning post?
No, but I think it's better to have as few as possible, i.e. once your string is tied at the saddle, pull it through the tuning post's holes a sufficient length so that there is not much slack and then knot it around (at least 3 times for trebles, 2 for basses).
But I think a video works better than me trying to explain this.
Here is one of the really good ones I've found on the subject. If you follow this, you'll be in good shape:

Good luck!
