So I have read on other boards that light spotting at 5 weeks can be considered normal, but I just can’t wrap my head around it. Do you all think its normal too? Mine is a clear, very light orangy/ pink color and its only noticable when I wipe. Anyone else have this? I have my first appointment with my doctor on Wednesday, but hoping for some info or reassurance before then.

If it’s not accompanied by pain, it stays light and pink, the odds that your pregnancy will continue are quite high. Spotting is VERY normal.
I had one or two drops of blood before 6 weeks mixed in with cervical mucus — mine was brown. I noticed it twice during a week span, and that was it. It did stop.
You’ll see many women freaking out about it, but then they go on to relate their providers’ concerns very calmly, like, “My doctor said it’s no big deal and that it happens a lot/ it’s only a worry when it’s bright red, painful and there are clots.”

totally normal assuming it stays light and isn’t accompanied by cramping. However, some people do have heavier bleeding and that doesn’t necessarily mean anything is wrong. Good luck, I am sure everything is fine!
