I installed the standalone LR 6 after upgrading from LR 5.7.

I expected LR 6 to overwrite LR 5.7, but the desktop icon and system files appear to remain.

Is it safe to unistall LR 5.7, and, if so are there any issues that I may encounter, for example loss of catalogues etc

You can go ahead and uninstall 5.7. You won't lose anything.
