Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to wait at least another week if not two before giving up.  At five weeks, we often do not see anything in the sac.
A follow up scan should be done in about a week.  Another option is to do quantitative beta hcg levels 48 hours apart to see if they are doubling.  If so, the pregnancy may be healthy.
Good luck!
