If it's the lever then yes I'd get new cables as there may be corrosion in there from wet weather riding. If it's the pads you can re-align them by loosening the pads, clamping on the brakes on with a credit card or similar between the front edge of the pad and rim, then re tighten the pads making sure they are in correct alignment with the rim. This will toe them in for you.
