At my 5w5d pregnancy u/s they could see a fetal pole with flickering (heartbeat?) but they said it could just be my maternal blood flow and not a hb?

In brief: Very early

This is not an uncommon issue in very early pregnancies as the embryo is quite small.
Try to keep a positive outlook. If needed a followup ultrasound will be more revealing in a few weeks.
