Default Catalyst efficiency

Hi guys, long time looker, first time poster. Got a 98 Ram, black, 318, y-pipe into dual glasspacks, and a k&n drop in. My check engine light came on and I had some guys at advance auto check it for me and it read "catalyst efficiency" (sorry if my spelling is wrong). The guy said it could be an o2 or the catalytic converter just wasnt working as good as usual, but that it wasnt that bad cause it didn't throw an engine code. anyone else had this, and know what the best thing to do about it is. Also, will just the fact that the check engine light is on, hurt my mpg or performance in anyway? Maybe a stupid question, but I was just wondering!
