A six-week discrepency is pretty severe. If you've missed two periods, you could be less than six weeks pregnant, so perhaps you miscalculated. Talk to your doctor about your concerns.

What are the chances of the baby still being alive if your ultrasound shows you at 5.5 weeks and according to your last period you should be at 7 weeks?

Baby is fine. The Ultrasound is more accurate at estimating your term at 5.5 weeks, since you may not have gotten pregnant just after your period. The estimate of weeks is based on the baby's size and development. Unless the technician stated otherwise, the baby is fine. Actually, predicting the exact date of conception and birth is not an exact science, and can't be, since there are other factors that go into gestation.

You are 13wks and 5days pregnant according to your last period but 11 weeks and 2 days pregnant according to your ultrasound but do you take off 2weeks from the ultrasound date you were told on 1st de?

You should be given an Estimated Date of Delivery (EDD) from both your last period AND the ultrsound, and they should match. If the ultrsound date is 2 weeks later than the period date it may be that you ovulated late in that cycle. The due dates for my pregnancies changed several times or more during the nine months. I'd follow the latest due date and you'll be so happy at the end if he/she arrives early. :)
