a(2:end,2) ==> [5;1] % 2nd to last rows, 2nd column
so you should find [x,y] == [1,2]
Not sure which you were really after that would return your expected results otomh I don't see one.
If you're trying to write a subset of the array and then work min() on the 2nd dimension, the ',2' is misplaced above (and you're missing the 2nd dimension for the subscript expression if you simply move it.
Try something like
[x ix] = min(a(2:end,:),2)
and see if you can get where you're going from there.
