I wish to get the file path to files other than images like PDF or TXT that are uploaded. Should I use wp_get_attachment_image_src or there's other function more suited for non-image attachments.

No, wp_get_attachment_image_src() is for image files only. For non-image files, you can use get_attached_file() to get the full filesystem path to the attachment file. And to get the full URL, you can use wp_get_attachment_url().
