I am starting to think about how soon i should get a mount now.

I would not bother worrying about your arena ranking for quite some time. At early levels it fluctuates wildly. Get the mount. Get it fast. The mount means you will be able to do 30% more quests which = 30% more gold & xp. The faster you do this, the better.
Also while i personally do go for xp over gold & feel this is the "best" way to go for long term play please note that at very early levels (the first 10 or 20) stats make a huge difference so it would be beneficial to balance your gold and xp gains during that time frame & then move over to the pure xp method.
