fat loss vs bulking

I'm extremely lost right now. Macros are correct for both bulking and cutting. I weigh 165 right now at 5'7 and have no idea if I should cut down fat before bulking or the opposite. I'm at such a weird stage on my fitness journey and would love some advice from anyone looking at my pics. Thanks guys
