This should do it:
If you want to keep only 5 characters in your label, then,

C#
private void Timer1_tick(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
if(Label.Text.Length >5)//if length is greater than 5
{
//get length of characters to be removed from Label text
int removelength= Label.Text.Length - 5;
//Remove characters greater than 5 at 5th index of character in label
Label1.Text = Label.Text.Remove(5 , removelength); //syntax: Remove(index, length);
}
}
