Default Calculating allele frequency in a population using the Hardy-Weinberg equation?



In calculating allele frequency in a population using the Hardy-Weinberg equation, if we start the research in a population looking for 5 alleles but ended up detecting only 3 alleles, do we calculate the frequency based on 3 alleles or 5 alleles? Which means the equation will be (p+q+r)2 or (p+q+r+s+t)2 ???
