You say it in the title, it's your first time.
Dungeons are meant to be the hardest content (PvE wise) in the game, it isn't meant to be done flawless from the first try.

Since you are new to dungeons going I wouldnt recommend going melee especially in exp. modes, since you'll likely get knocked flat on your back due to not knowing the mobs/bossessess tells etc. Go ranged when you feel like you aren't sure you know the right times to dodge, being dead helps no one and hinders the team, at least at ranged you still deal damage.
Now I can't really speak from experience on how your class should function in a dungeon, since I have never used my thief in dungeons, mainly use my mesmer. But basically you have to play it smart when going up close, just be cautious and watch out for tells. Basically as a rule I almost always try to melee from behind a boss, for the most part it gives the added bonus of the boss having to turn around before it smacks you for 75% of your health, just enough time to dodge roll out of there.

That being said, if I felt like I was getting hammered at melee, I'd move back and switch to pistols.
Bear in mind, story is generally easier than Expl. Look at your armor level, tactics, ability to dodge, and try to improve. If you're having a really bad time - of your team sucks in general, switch to ranged combat.

If I haven't done the content before, or if I haven't done it enough to know it fairly well, my weapon sets are:
Better safe than sorry on a squishy, at least until you know the content.
