Default Checked my DTC today, what to do?

My truck has been running kinda ruff lately, acceleration is fine but maintaining speeds has been a challenge. I threw a code this morning when I was driving and stopped into autozone real quick to check it. P0172 (The computer has recognized a rick or lean condition on one engine bank only.) Also code P0132 (The computer is recieving a high voltage indicating the system has a low content of oxygen.) So I'm guessing one of three things.
1.) Bad O2 sensor.
2.) K&N Filter needs cleaned/charged, I looked at it a little while ago and it's not so red anymore.
3.) Bad fuel pressure regulator.

or could it be something else?

sounds like a bad oxygen sensor. I would call the dealer and pick their brain a little bit before you changed anything though. I always clean my K&N filter every oil change (3k mi.)

I usually do it about every other oil change on my other vehicles, but I just got the truck about a month ago about the same time my wife had our baby so I haven't had the time or resources to really go through it. I've only drove it about 6 or 7 times since I got it because I know it needs a lot of work. I have a pretty good size to do list going right now for it. It's no where near a show truck nor do I want to make it into one. I have my F150 Lightning for that but I'd at least like to get it up to par even though I'll be dumping more money into it than what's it's worth.
