I read on this website that less than 5% of semen is sperm. If this is true, then how much sperm is contained in precum?

Precum, doesn't necessarily contain any, but if there is any semen left from a previous (and recent) ejaculation, this can come out along with pre-ejaculate. So it's not a set number, it's just a small amount which may or may not be there.

Sometimes there is, as it only takes one active sperm and a few hundred helper sperm to create a pregnancy. But there is no way to how many sperm (if any) are contained in a certain dose of pre-cum.
You can read more about that here:

Could she get pregnant from precum possibly being transferred around via hand?
