the lower frequencies usaually do. why? you cant hear high notes while playing low notes as well? just work on muting the strings better.

No, you should be able to hear all notes equally.

Perhaps your pickups are not set to the correct hieght.

And no, "the closer my pickup is to the strings the better", that is not correct thinking.

The treble side should be slightly closer to the strings than the bass side.....slightly.....
But overall, the pickups should not be too close to the strings, they are magnets and they will deaden the vibration of the strings when they are too close.

Best bet is to look in the owners manual for the correct distance between pickup and strings.
If you don't have your manual look online.
If all else fails, use Fender's manual. That should be a pretty average starting point.

If i play a chord. the higher notes are very faint, even if i pluck them hard. the low note just ring out and stands out more

Like Jonmo1 said, adjust your pickup height
