In brief: Possibly urgent

Decreased vision is always in need of evaluation.
Though sometimes benign the association of seeing lines in your vision can indicate a posterior problem (vitreous and/or retina). One must be evaluated for a vitreous hemorrhage or retina tear/break/detachment. Please contact your provider as soon as possible.

In brief: Need exam.

You need an exam to fully answer. But it sounds like you have a posterior vitreous detachment.
Which is when the posterior surface of the vitreous (jelly) pulls from the retina, leaving blurred areas of jelly in the eye causing cloudy, hazy, lines, spots, dots in the vision. You need exam to check the retina for holes or retinal detachment.
