local event, btn, mousex, mouseY = os.pullEvent("mouse_click")
If mouseX>=1 and mouseX=<5 and mouseY==1 then --#Detects when the x is between 1-5 and y is equal to 1
  print("test")

You should use tables if you need to detect when random coordinates are clicked:

local coords = {
  1,2,1,3,1,4,1,5,1,6
}

local event, btn, mouseX, mouseY = os.pullEvent("mouse_click")
for index=1, #coords, 2 do --#This will increment by two
  if mouseX == coords[index] and mouseY==coords[index+1] then
    print("test")
  end
end

If you need coordinates that are in a range, use a simple if statement:
local event, btn, mousex, mouseY = os.pullEvent("mouse_click")
if mouseX>=1 and mouseX=<5 and mouseY==1 then --#Detects when the x is between 1-5 and y is equal to 1
  print("test")
end

I think your comparison signs are mixed up. Try switching them around: >= to <=

if mouseX<=1 and mouseX<=5 and mouseY==1 then                         -- [ <= ]
  print("test")
end

attempt to compare __le on nil an number :/

and:

local event, btn, mousex, mouseY = os.pullEvent("mouse_click")
if mouseX<=1 and mouseX=<5 and mouseY==1 then                        -- [ =< ]
  print("test")
end

Please look thoroughly in your code before pasting it here again.

local event, btn, mouseX, mouseY = os.pullEvent("mouse_click") --# the first "mouseX" here wasn't capitalized.
if mouseX >= 1 and mouseX <= 5 and mouseY == 1 then              --# also, the first symbol should be >=
  print("test")
end
