How much creatine is good. I was thinking of taking 5g twice a day. And take it for 6 weeks on and 6 off. Is that good?

As for 6 weeks on and 6 weeks off, that would be a form of "cycling" creatine. I am not aware of any evidence that you need to cycle creatine.

Loading is 0.3 grams per Kg of body weight for about 5-7 days.
Maintenance is 0.03 g per Kg.
Formula for you
Loading: 134 lbs divided by 2.2 + 60.9 Kg, 60.9 Kg x 0.3 g = 18.2 g creatine for loading
Maintenance: 60.9 Kg x 0.03 = 1.82 for Maintenance
Creaine Mono is 5g per teaspoon of powder. So roughly 4 teaspoons for a week. Then a little less than half a teaspoon for maintenance.
