Which is the better item to get FIRST in these situations

1) doing really well in lane , with like 5/0 ?

2) doing averagely in lane , not getting kills but just csing

3) getting zoned and killed a few times in lane

thanks for the help

Gunblade is always #1

I believe you should go Gunblade -> Rylai's. Gunblade gives the most damage increase, which will help you if you're raping faces, and it does give a huge amount of lifesteal/spellvamp, which will help you to keep your health up if you're getting zoned.

Just my two cents...

1) Gunblade - Get even more damage, plus a mini nuke and a slow so they won't be able to run. Good for ganks, which you should be doing at this point.

2) Gunblade - Gunblade is just what you need. Easier cs, more sustain, and makes it easier to get those kills.

3) Gunblade - While the Rylai's comes with health, I would argue that this gives you sustain, damage, and a great way to turn the odds when they inevitably tower dive you. It also keeps you relevant as the game continues.

Neither. What you should do is get a Revolver, then get Rylais, Lichbane, and Deathcap. Gunblade is really good on Akali, but it doesn't outshine the rest of her items as far as fulfilling her role is concerned. It's a really good topper item though after her core.

That said, if you're steamrolling the enemy and there is no chance of a comeback, stack Gunblades. Nothing will seal your victory quicker than 3-4 Gunblades. Keep in mind, though, this is purely pubstomp material and won't work outside of that situation.
