Five weeks is very young. The dog cannot hold urine or anything else for very long.
You can take watch her very carefully, and when she smells the floor, or gets through drinking or gets finished exercising or wakes up from a nap, say in a happy voice "lets go outside and go potty!"
Make it exciting and happy. When he goes to the potty outside, praise the darling and say "Yaaa! What a good girl, you went to the potty!" Make it all a big game.
If you know the signs of them needing to go out, training will go faster. After each time you play or she runs around, it will be time to go outside to go potty. This will teach her to have a good attitude about going potty outside!
