Stupid Question: Is it possible to get the probability of an event re-ocurring?

I know about the gambler's fallacy, if I toss coin and I have 50% probability of the result being heads and 50% probability of the result being tails, can I calculate the probability of heads appearing lets say 5 times in a row? How?

Intuitively it's obvious that is less likely that heads appears 100 times in a row compared to heads appearing 5 times in a row. How can you calculate this? I know it also has to do with the number of times you toss the coin. I want to make a simple probability calculator.

Any help or resource would be greatly appreciated!
