I am showing a sprite and would like to have a coded way to make a sprite disappear after showing for five second without using animations.

Have you looked into using a Timer? Set the Timer to "One shot", then assign its timeout() signal to some script (such as the sprite's script). Set the signal function (the one that's usually called _on_timer_timeout()) to either hide the sprite, or free it completely. The function would look like this:

# In the sprite script.
func _on_timer_timeout():
    # Either call this function or hide()

You can show the sprite start a timer then use the timer's timeout signal

func on_timer_timeout():
    $Sprite.visible = false

I'm new to Godot but I think you can use the timer node and use signal to connect it to the sprite. Then on the inspector increase wait to 5.
That's it I think
