I have a amd A10 5800k with a 750 ti, and want to upgrade my gpu...

i'm considering a rx 570 for a upgrade, but my cpu is fairly old, will the rx 570 bottleneck my A10 5800k???

Yes, without any doubt there will be a bottleneck. How severe depends on the game and the rest of your hardware specs, but it would be a REALLY good idea to consider a newer platform if you want to use that graphics card. Fortunately, you can probably upgrade to that card now, and use it as is, and then upgrade the rest of the system later when you are able.

Of more importance may be whether or not your current power supply is capable of supporting the RX570, because you need a good quality 500w unit, compared to the 750ti that will likely run on any mediocre 450w model.
