It is possible that you just need to allow your engine a little more time to warm up before moving choke lever to the off position. Let me know if this does not help.
the other problem suggests the "unloader valve" (uv) is not functioning properly. The uv is the device that allows the water to be routed into a bypass loop when you release the trigger. This part may even have something to do with your choke issue. Not often, but once in a while, they can hang and not allow water to pump freely in either direction (out the hose/nozzle or bypass loop). If this pressure washer has been exposed to a hard freeze without being completely drained, this could damage the uv and the pump.
One other point -- old gas from last season should be discarded. Gas degrades and can cause what you are describing.
I hope this is helpful and gets you going! If yes, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks.
