Injector noise

Ive noticed the past few days the truck at idle the injectors are knocking louder than normal, it has also sounded wierd at start up but within a few seconds it sounds ok, I did let the fuel level get below 1/4 which I usually fill up before it gets that low, the low fuel light had just come on today, and the idle knock was really noticeable and the idle was not as smooth as usual, so I filled her up and now the truck sounds normal, so do I have a fuel pick up issue?
