Have you done any work recently on the gas gauge? If not, the float in the gas tank may have been damaged some how. Or you're gauge cluster may be damaged and need replaced.

As for your headlights, it's hard to say what's wrong. I would start by testing current in each headlight harness if that's the same then i'd say that your bulb may need replaced.

sounds to me like a bad ground or a short somewhere in the wiring if I had to guess.
