You're faster than me, so take my advice with a pinch of salt.

But it depends on what you want to achieve, you can get a decent amount faster without learning more. But if you like learning algs, or want to get ahead on something and enjoy that part of cubing, getting colour neutral would be a good idea now, rather than later.

wtf
get at least sub-10/sub-9 before even thinking about learning any new algs UNLESS you enjoy learning algs
if the latter is the case then learn zb
I learned COLL when I avged 12.

I would recommend learning COLL next (except for sune cases and garbage algs like R' (y perm) R) whenever you feel ready (or if you enjoy learning algs) and also learn easy algs for WV, OLLCP, BLE, CLS, ZBLL, and nice PLL's from different angles.

I learned PLL and OLL pretty early before I became sub 20 (which I became today). Realistically, you shouldn't need to know more than that to get even sub 10.

thanks, i have been thinking about becoming cn
I tried starting to become CN and did a bunch of easy cross solves on green. I got barely any low 20s or sub 20s so I gave up and decided to focus on becoming sub 20.

That being said, I should become CN cuz then there's much more opportunity for lucky scrambles or LL cases.

R' Y perm R is good as a ZBLL

I don't think there is a good answer to your question which feels a little invalid to me.

Either you ask "what do i do now to get faster" and then listen to those who say you don't need more algs until closer to 10s than 20s.
Or you just want to learn algs for the sake of it in which case there is no need to ask just go for whatever looks prettier to you.
