It doesn't say to change it at 5K. Most dealers recommend you do the first one at 5K then follow the oil thingamajiggie (technical term).
Actually those dealers are not following Honda's suggestion. You use the MM system and change it when you're below 10%. The dealer I went to was very specific in saying the first change should be done when the car says. Honda puts a special additive in the first oil off the factory floor.
According to the manual your oil should be changed when MM tells you to, or every 12 months. Read the manual.
