My furnace and my air conditioning unit are running, but the air flow through my vents is weak....would this be a filter issue?

Yes, weak air flow is often caused by a dirty filter. A bad filter restricts air flow, resulting in problems ranging from weak air flow to causing the system to shut down. Other possibilities are an obstruction in your ductwork, a problem with the vents, or a blower issue.

Try cleaning or changing the filter and check to make sure the vents are opened fully.  If this does not solve the problem, you should probably contact a licensed HVAC professional, especially if it is a blower issue. If you'd like to have a contractor take a look at this, we can help you find one, here.
