I'm aware that in my title I did describe my issue as being a bottleneck, but I'm not actually entirely sure what's happening. As of recent (last couple of days) my CPU usage has been around 100% and my GPU usage hovers around 60-70%. My best guess is that what's happening may be a bottleneck but my issue has only just now started and I've never heard of a system just randomly start to bottleneck.
My frames in game have gotten pretty low and I was wondering if there was any sort of fix to this that doesn't entail purchasing either an entirely new CPU or GPU.

My hardware:
GTX 1060 6GB
Ryzen 5 1400
8 GB ram
ASRock AB350 Pro 4 motherboard
1TB HDD

I did scan for viruses and my system was clean. My temps look fine.

How would I go about checking what's using my cycles and clock speeds?

My temps are 45 to at most 50 degrees celsius. When I tab out of my game my CPU usage drops from about 100% to maybe half that.
