clutch or kill switch problem

Hello, I have a 2009 ninja 250 and am new to motorcycles.
I bought my bike used at 2900 miles and it's at about 3100 now. I noticed the bike would die when I went to put it into first gear and I thought it just needed to warm up a but more so i gave it about 15 minutes and the RPMs are under 2000 but the bike starts and idles fine but when I put it into first gear it just but dies. Also it won't start in gear with the side stand up and clutch lever pulled. Anyone have any advice or tips?
I'm going to do an oil change tomorrow, should I use 10-30 or 10-40

If you are able to start the bike in neutral and the side stand down, but not start in gear with the side stand up and clutch lever pulled in, you have a side stand switch problem. The switch is either bad, disconnected or dirty.

It was very dirty but fine now. Thanks. It also only had 1/4 a quart of oil in it but I did an oil change and it's running normal again.
