Terminal 101: Check the Uptime of your Mac

My last logout (shot down) was 350 minutes ago, but after the start of the Mac this was the log of the "uptime" command... only 2 minutes . Why?
I did the log because I thought that someone (I've been out about 6 hours) has entered the house. The log shows that someone had access to my computer? Why the Mac has not calculated the stop time?

hi, I am not tech savvy but I have a question about uptime, regarding the following:

and the load averages for the processors/cores in your system.

What are the load average numbers supposed to be? Just curious. Thank you
