If I get my strings in tune and play a double stop on the the 1st fret, it sounds right, If go up to like the 5th fret, it's out of tune.

You need to set your intonation.

I figured it was intonation but I've never messed with that before. Would I adjust my truss rod?

No, you adjust the length of the string. Is the 5th fret sharp or flat?

When the note at the 12th fret is flat compared to the 12th fret harmonic, shorten the string.

should I bother adjusting it if I have old strings?

I would. I mean, string age shouldn't affect the pitch that much.
