I'm on a 3 day weightlifting split push/pull/legs
I do Cardio 4 times a week, about 1 hour each session (Intense! cardio)
typically what i eat on a day
1 meal : 100g tuna - 1 slice wholegrain bread - 250g mixed vegetables = aprox 300 cals / 37g protein
2 meal : (preworkout) 1/2 cup oats - 1x scoop whey - 1x banana = aprox 370 cals / 22g protein
3 meal : (family dinner) about 150-175g of some lean meat - 200g vegetables - 130g brown rice = aprox 405-600 cals / aprox 33g protein
4 meal : some dried fish = 110 cals / 20g protein
my weight is slowly dropping, around 1/2 pound a week.
am i going to be able to build muscle, while loosing weight very slowly?

It's a good start, sounds to me like you will see fat reduction, and small mass gains, if your new to body building anyway.
If I you were to ask me, I think it would be best for you to go all the way to one side, rather than in the middle, as you could go straight for cutting, get down to that 10/12% body fat,and then if you wanted to clean bulk/bulk up for the mass gains, as that way I would think it would come faster, as it sounds like you wanna be a lean, decent size meso.
Good luck, your on the right track.
