I'm looking for a mp3 player software that lets you go back say 5 seconds of the audio clip by pressing the left arrow key.
I'm using this as a means to memorize, and I used to use winamp on the PC and was wondering what choices I have on a Mac.

As always VLC will do that for you. The key combination:
⌘ +^ + →
from within VLC will skip forward 5 seconds. Left arrow for backwards.
You can also change the key combination, as well as skip, 10 or more seconds depending on the combination you choose from the menu,
iTunes is highly scriptable.
You could write a one line AppleScript and then assign it to the the key combination of your choice.
-- iTunes Back 5 tell application "iTunes" to set player position to (player position - 5)
To do what you want I would suggest following :
service receives no input
tell application "iTunes" to set player position to (player position - 5)
System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard shortcut
