You might want to check the PCAT requirements for your schools. A couple of mine have both composite and subject minimums, like 25 composite, 60 for chem, and 25 for the remaining subjects.

One thing I'm somewhat confused about is why you would take the PCAT even though you haven't taken a majority of the prerequisites required by most schools.

If you take these classes, you might be better prepared for taking the PCAT and ultimately get a better score. Additionally, a lot of those classes are science-heavy and somewhat difficult, so they may change your GPA.

My recommendation would be to take some more of the prereq classes, do more studying, and take the test again. That way you'all get a better PCAT score and a GPA which will better reflect your competitiveness as an applicant.

You should definitely take it again after you at least have OChem, A&P and Microbiology. Use Dr. Collins to study. Go hard on nothing but practice tests. Then you can double back on things you missed during practice tests and study that. Kaplan biology is good but nothing else from Kaplan is. If you haven't already get work experience too
