Chess Kit Training Endgame King and Pawn

Endgames, that is positions with only a few pieces left, are often the hardest positions to play. Endgames, however, are different than other positions since all the pieces need to be used. Often we find the king to be the most active piece. Here is an example of a tricky king and pawn endgame. Pretend you are playing White in the position.

Here are the questions:

1) Are you winning?
2) What are White's best moves?
