P0266 and P0272

Scanned for codes today (just got my OBDII bluetooth adapter today) and both these codes popped. Cylinder contribution/balance in #2 and #4. Obviously, being concerned as I've only had the truck 3 weeks, I called my mechanic and the dealership I bought it from. They said to clear them and monitor to make sure they don't come back. Now, my question is, what are some of the causes of these codes popping? I've heard everything from bad fuel to bad injectors to toasted pistons. Thoughts?

Obviously, if they pop again, it's going straight to the dealership to be fixed, I didn't buy a warranty for the truck for nothing.

Does it have a knock or a tick? When I had cylinder contribution codes it was for a broken rocker. It could also be an injector.

No knock or tick. Idon't cleared the codes and have driven the truck a bit today, they haven't popped back up again.

My truck just threw the same code for cylinder contribution/balance in the #8 cylinder. I haven't noticed any loss of power or rough ideling. I cleared the code and it hasn't come back yet.

One thing I have noticed is that my truck seems to be really loud during the regen process... But not down on power and it runs fine. Thoughts?
