OS is SL6. Googling did not turn up any results for a yum repo for mysql 5.6. Percona would also be totally fine, google didn’t turn up anything there either.
MySQL 5.6 has only just reached GA on February 5. It will take some time (days or perhaps weeks) before any packagers have stable builds available, because changing the MySQL version affects many other system packages.
