OD and OD light wont work

Just bought a 97 CCSB 4x4 with 189K miles. Noticed the OD wont work and the light on the shifter lever does not work at all. Also noticed shifting from 1st to 2nd it revs high, say 2.5k rpm, and wont shift to 2nd unless I let off the throttle a bit. I am not hammering the throttle at all, just nice easy in city driving. Is this the tranny going out? I'm already planning to drop the tranny oil pan and swap out the oil/filter soon, maybe even a new pan with a drain plug. As for the OD not working, is this just a bad shift lever switch/wiring or is this another sign of the tranny going out?

I searched around but all I saw was the threads relating to the OD light flashing.
