Hey,I have little knowledge of PC hardware but I bought this one about a year ago and looking for some feedback on it. It's been running allright but I have been dissapointed in its performance on some games like Squad where the graphics are very grainy and the fps at round 40. Im looking to upgrade pretty soon, what should I upgrade first and is my CPU/GPU a bottleneck?

Specs:
KPC Cooler Master B500
Intel LGA 1151 core i5 - 7500
Asus LGA1151 PRIME B250M
HyperX Fury DDR4 2666mhz 16GB 2x8
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1060 3GB
Seagate Firecuda 1TB 3.5 SSHD

Thank you

Well the CPU is the weakest point on it. I'd upgrade it to an i7-7700 or a an i7-7700k. I know the B250M-PLUS can overclock, not sure on the non PLUS model. Either case, it will support the 7700k CPU... which is a big performance gain over the 7500.
The next thing up would be the GPU. Not sure what your budget is, but if you have the money for a GTX 1080 Ti I'd definitely go for that. Otherwise a good worthwhile upgrade would be to at least a GTX 1070 or 1070 Ti.
