There isn't a macro lens as yet, but maybe extension tubes will be a future possibility. Of course once the Adapter K for Q is available then any K mount lens that's suitable could do the job.

Close up lenses may be an alternative for now.

Sorry that is what I was meaning. Am going to buy the adaptor and I was wondering what would be a good k mount micro lense to buy

Oh I see. Well, as the adapter is going to mean manual focus only there seems to be quite a bit of potential there. Also bear in mind the 5.5x crop factor, so it may be that a 35mm Macro (200mm equivalent approx) could be as far as we need to go. A 100mm macro would have an equivalent angle of view as a 550mm, which for a macro lens would be very unusual!

That sounds like it could be some fun. there is such a difference in price range is there anything I should be looking for in a good macro?

Macro lenses are usually excellent regardless of make. All the Pentax ones are very fine lenses, so you have little to lose and everything to gain.
