This slur is only on the second string, with the "p" denoting a "pull off" from 1st fret of second string.
So yes, you need to do a "pull off" on the second string, while plucking the third open string.

Play the low E, then the C on 2nd string, 1st fret. Then, as you play the 3rd string open, you carefully pull off from 1st fret to open, 2nd string. The slur denotes legato, and the 'p' denotes how the writer wants that played legato. There are other ways to play legato, so he's being specific.
