First of all we like to check the easy/cheap things first.
1. Are the shut-off valves closed lightly?
If they are closed, open them.....easiest fix of them all.
2. If the valves are open then possibly a washer is shifted.
Turn off the water supply at the valves under the sink. Remove the handles by removing the set screw under the handles. There should then be a packing nut which holds all of the "guts" of the faucet in. Remove this nut and pull out the long stem. On the bottom of this stem is a flat washer that may have been damaged or is just slightly shifted. EIther way, I would replace it if the faucet is more then a few years old as it is cheap and you already have access to it. WHen replacing the valve stem, be sure to use a plumbers grease on all rings and seals. The rest of the replacement is the same are the removal.
Hope this helps.

pull the sprayer out, get some plyers or a wrench and losen up the connection. between the hose and the sprayer there is usually a screen take it out and walla it should take care of you, it also helps to leave the sprayer in some lime away or vinegar for a few hrs to get the hard water losened up in it

Remove the aerator at the end of the spout. It will unscrew and once off it will have a dime sized restricter in it that can be removed this restrict's the water down to about 1.6 gpm to save water.
It will either be plastic or metal and about the size of a dime with a small holw in it to let water pass by maybe 1/8" hole just remove it and put aerator back together.
Clean aerator screen out before you put it back together.
