Question about wheel alignment

I have a Schwinn Traveler. probrably 1983-1985 i believe.
The front tire is unaligned and it is leaning on one side of the fork when it is suppose to be dead center between the forks.
Dont know if i have to true my spokes or what. NEED HELP ASAP!!!

Welcome to the Forums.

This topic isn't Foo material- it would be better off in our Bicycle Mechanics forum. Moving it to there now.

If the whole wheel leans, it means your axle is loose, or whoever put your wheel on last tightened it down at the wrong angle. If your wheel only is off center in spots(large or small), the wheel may be out of true. It's probably best to take it to a shop to be sure. If the wheel just need to be remounted, it shouldn't take long.
