The yolk sac should be visible by the end of 6 weeks usually. Please be patient. You are still 5 weeks and 1 day pregnant. You may repeat the ultrasound scan at 6 weeks to 6.5 weeks and look for the yolk sac. If your HCG levels steadily increases, it confirms your pregnant state.

Even I do not think it is Molar pregnancy. It is not possible to visualize the yolk sac prior to 6 weeks many a times.

Hope this helps you.

Be patient and wish you all the best.
