On my two latest blood tests I have had 5mg/dl of Ketones in my urine. My older blood tests before going Paleo were always at zero... Does this mean I am in Ketosis, close to Ketosis, or...?
There was another recent thread about ketosis but I did not want to hijack it with a differently angled question.

It may mean that. It is sometimes measured at blood draws or urine sampling, because if you aren't eating low levels of carbohydrates, it can give a false positive indicating dehydration.
If you are eating fairly low carb, I wouldn't worry about it, but in either case, it might be worth thinking about your hydration level.
