You'll get a feel for the gear you need as you gain experience. That being said, 5mph is really slow, so 1st would be my choice.

AFA clutching in low velocity maneuvers, my recommendation is to keep your throttle steady at a decent engine rpm, then use the clutch to apply power when necessary. This technique is especially useful when on a bike that develops power at higher rpm.

You'll recall the consensus of the folks on this site was for you (and all other new riders) to get a "learner" bike. Now you know why.
