Dangerous to insert parsley vaginally and drink the tea taking high amounts of vitamin C when 5 weeks pregnant to cause miscarriage?

Yes: Do NOT try any "home remedy" to terminate a pregnancy! So many complications can occur-from infection/sepsis/death to hemorrhage/shock/death! Please go to a health care center, perhaps planned parenthood, or see your PCP. I believe in Europe there is an OTC medication that you can take to induce termination of pregnancy up to (and maybe longer) 6 weeks, but I do not know if it is available US

No it won't: But there's no good evidence supporting vitamin c use. Anyhow, it's 100% safe for you to take.
