Are they recurring faults - if you clear them do they come back? I'd be more aware of the failing cat.
I just bought it, like hours ago. I didn't try to clear them as that was my friend's obd2 reader. I only have a cheap one, don't think it has the function for it.

You'll need to get VCDS on it to establish the number of times the fault has occured and then you can see how likely it is to keep happening. Then log data, see if the valve is responding etc. It could just need cleaned.

Alright. I don't have VCDS nor do I have someone that has access to it, so I guess I'll take it to a mechanic for a diagnostic and look for what you said.

VAG-DS is a more expensive clone but can be updated to latest software. Most clones are fixed to a version (like 12.12 usually, which is fine for a MK5).

Nice! Thanks man. Is that Bulgarian? I can't read it but I got a friend who can, definitely I need that clone.
