why do I see frames indicator instead of seconds?
I trimmed the comp to 5 seconds and I see frames why it is not seconds?

You simply have to know how to read it. I see a timeline that begins at Zero seconds and ends at Five seconds. There's nothing wrong.

You won't find anything like 2.875 seconds, because AE timelines don't display in fractions of seconds. They display in the smallest unit in the comp: the frame. If you zoom in on the timeline, you'll see seconds at the seconds marks, plus frames, the number of which is based on the comp's frame rate.
