      56s is too weak to call out of position facing mp. I prefer calling stronger hands like AJs+ and AQ o and if he's wide enough you also can call ATs and AJo.

      You should fold this hand pre flop.

      As played ill call flop and turn to hit the flush draw or 2p because his betting 2 streets indicates that he has A and it's not a good plan to try to fold out top pair in general unless you know he's super tight on calling raises which is seldom the case
