I had my wisdom teeth pulled ~5 days ago and I am paranoid this is dry socket. No more pain than usual, but the dark clot that was originally there has dissipated and is only at the very bottom now. Thank you in advance

The blood clot is gone because your extraction wound is probably healing properly.
I wouldn't worry about it being a dry socket. You're not in pain (w/ dry sockets the pain usually occurs 2-3 days after the extraction) and it doesn't appear to be all brown and mushy.
If it doesn't stink, isn't dark brown and doesn't hurt than you should be just fine.
