Default 5 amp fuse okay?

i wired up two lights like the ones you'd find connected to an aftermarket gauge that i ran through a little led switch i had laying around and i was wondering if a 5 amp fuse would be the proper one to use. i haven't decided where these lights will be placed, maybe in the center console and by the cupholder. could i run another light or two?

also any input on where you'd put some lights would be cool too

Small lamps usually require less than 250 milliamps apiece and really more like 100 milliamps of current draw so really a 2 amp fuse would be alright to run the lights. The proper size wiring gauge should also be selected for the circuit. If you are using a 18 gauge wire that would be fine for what you are doing.
