So technically Nico Minoru is not a mutant correct?

Correct!   Molly was the only mutant in the Runaways until Klara joined.  Nico is a dark magic user, but still only had regular human genes :)

So in other words she can't be killed by a Sentinel when it scans her?

Yes, she can be killed by a Sentinel if it accidentally steps on her. Will a Sentinel randomly attack her? Probably not, she has no X-Gene.

Mutants don't die when Sentinels scan them.  Mutants die when Sentinels blast them.   
 
So would she register as a mutant if a sentinel scanned her?  No.  Would she die if she was caught in the line of fire trying to protect Molly in a fight against a Sentinel?  Yes.

So how is it Molly is a mutant and how many of the Runaways are mutants?

@Darj Kurlan02: How is Molly a mutant?  In the same way that other mutants are mutants; they were born with the X-Gene. 

As for how many members are mutants, I already answered that above.  See:

I thought everyone knows that Nico isn't a mutant.   O_o  - just reading her bio would answer that.
 
I hate unecessary threads like this. They just clog up Character's pages for no reason.

Ironically enough, since Molly had mutant parents (thus being a "second-generation" or more mutant) I think that puts her in a very small minority compared to "other mutants". Heck, she might not even fit the scientific definition of "mutant" at all.

Molly is definitely a mutant.  It surprised her parents because they'd had her screened to check for the X-Gene, but all tests had previously failed.  When she developed her mutant powers, everyone mistook the symptoms she described as that of her first period.  Not wholely unlike when Kitty Pryde's powers first developed & everyone mistook it for a series of migraines.   
 
What's unusual is that she had parents who both had the same sets of telepathic based powers, but she ended up with extreme strength instead.  In the past, telepathic parentage is usually hereditary (like with Jean Grey's genetic children Rachel, Nate Grey & Nate Summers, Emma Frost's cloned daughters the Cuckoos, and Xavier's son Legion).  It's not guaranteed that the mutant child of a mutant parent will inherit the same powers (like Quicksilver & Scarlet Witch) or that a mutant parent will have a mutant child (Luna, daughter of Quicksilver & grand-daughter of the mighty Magneto), but it is pretty unusual for 2 identical telepaths to have a child with enhanced strength instead...
