Burning smell...?

I just bought my prelude almost a week ago. It was as is so I got it for mad cheap knowing there's probably going to be problems. So the check engine light is on and I checked it out and it seems it's giving me a failing cat converter or something. It was driving fine for about 2 days until I noticed a weird funny smell. It smelt like burning rubber or plastic and it was coming from the center/rear area. I also noticed my fuel economy wasn't the best.

Could it be that I need to replace my catalytic converter? Or could it also be the ebrake because when I park on a slope, it'll fall back unless I put it in first gear. If it is the cat, should I change it with a Hi-Flow or stock? Any help would be appreciated. The stock cat seems extremely pricey though...
