My printer specs state to enter marks offset and bleeds and slugs as 5mm but InDesign is wanting it entered is 0p0 format. What's this and what do I enter to make it 5mm?

Take it easy, it's just a matter of units. Enter exactly "5 mm" (without quotes) in the field(s) for bleed, InDesign on the fly will convert it to your default units (picas), and you're good to go with it. You'll get the proper bleed size.
BTW, in picas it will be 1p2,173. You can enter this with equal success.

Also you can set your document measurement units to millimeters by right or Control clicking the horizontal and vertical rulers. To make millimeters the application default close all documents and go to Preferences>Units & Increments
