I just purchased my hero5 and im a newbie with gopros. I was just taking photos and my hero 5 heats up and drains battery fast. Is this something i should be worried about or is this just normal?

Also, what SD card are you using (make/model/size)? I recommend Samsung Pro or Lexar 633X or Lexar 1000x as these cards seem to cause the least amount of issues.

Try swiping down and going to Connect. If you don't need Wifi and Bluetooth at the moment, I highly recommend to turn them off by going to the bottom and pressing "Wireless Connections" so the power symbol is grey. In Preferences, if you don't need GPS at the moment, turn that off too. Turn down your screen brightness (I'm perfectly happy with 25%). Give this a try and see if this works!
The heat is from using the GoPro at high settings.
