I had type 1 and 5 on bristol chart in my BM. Normal or am I constipated? I drink 60 oz water/day and eat plenty fruits and veg.

In brief: BM's

Type 1 stools may indicate some degree of constipation, but type 5 indicates some looseness.
I think that you may have a mild case of irritable bowel syndrome. However you may not be troubled by this varying bowel movement pattern. If you are, look up the fodmop foods and avoid or reduce them.
