Question about Japanese

Can someone help me understand why 五 (ご) in 五日 (いつか) is pronounced "い" instead of the "ご " reading I see everywhere else? Why isn't it "ごつか"? This is one example of my struggle to figure out the readings of kanji because I cannot seem to find a consistency with the kanji pronounciations. For every word, it seems like the same kanji is pronounced differently and I need help getting a sense of pattern down for reading pronounciations. I would really appreciate an explanation! 😁
