1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For instance I have NaCl. I found a relationship between conductivity of NaCl in water and concentration of NaCl in the water. It's; conductivity is approx 0.5 concentration

Is it correct that the change in concentration gives the number of ions?

For example say I start off with conductivity of 100 microsiemens/cm and a concentration of 50 mg/L for the NaCl. At the end let's say I have 50 microsiemens/cm and a concentration of 25 mg/L.

25 mg/L = 0.025 g/L = 4.3 x 10^-4 Mol/L = 4.3 x 10^-4 M using the molar mass of NaCl of 58.44 g/Mol

Is the change in ion concentration 25 mg/L = 4.3 x 10^-4 M?

Or can you get an "actual" number change for example a change of 1000 ions lets say. Or is change in ion concentration always generally put in terms of M?

Thanks

Have you ever heard about units?

No idea what you are talking about, but no.

Sorry, what you wrote makes completely no sense to me.
