It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. There appear to be multiple issue, one being anemia, others could be vitamin deficiency and dehydration. Take oral iron and multivitamins, drink enough water so your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise regularly. It would be prudent to see a doctor.
Wish you good health!
