Eat more, you're 131lbs so it's no suprise that your lifts are progressing slowly.
Do squats first whenever the rack is free.
Also go heavier on your deadlifts, have OHP as 50% of your deadlift is worrying.

You need to up that deadlift, I could deadlift 120kg within a few months at the gym and I only weighed about 150 pounds.

Oh yeah and buy some peanut butter

Just a major case of manning up. Shovel more food down your body, and throw more weight on the bar. Don't be afraid to push it, training is supposed to be hard.

Full fat milk, nuts, peanut butter, good quality oils. Doesn't cost too much.
