A late update, but it seems that Unite the Union – who is negotiating with Heathrow Airport in regards to the upcoming strikes put out a late statement.
The strike on the 5th August has been suspended to allow talks with ACAS (The Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service). Meanwhile the strike for the 6th August is currently still on at the time of writing.
Unite the Union release the following statement:

If talks are successful, the strikes for the 6th August could be suspended too.
No doubt a lot of people are hit, and airlines are still in contingency mode still.
If you are flying to, from or through Heathrow Airport the next two days – check you flight is operating still with your airline and plan appropriately – especially with the threat of a strike still in the balance for the 6th August.
