I just found two queens in my 5 frame nuk.
is it likely the hive will swarm in this condition?
should I split the hive, remove one queen with two frames?

Why?  They don't swarm because there are two queens.  They swarm BEFORE there are two queens...

thanks for the reassurance michael, I think when these small issues reach us new guys, we start worrying unnecessarily.
Cheers
