At the top bar of the site on PC, I see this: enter image description here

The mouseover says 5 total posts awaiting review, but when I click on it to get to the review queue, I see this:

The number displayed at the top is not a number of posts for you specifically, but a "global" number of reviews in the system. For example, if someone votes "Leave Open" on a close vote review, the post is still an active review for others, so the displayed number is not changed.
