It can mean either, but it also has another meaning (at least in the US) that is probably more common.
If I give someone a ride in my car, I would also say I picked them up. In that case, it has no romantic or sexual meaning at all. It just means I gave them a ride.
Ex: I'll pick you up on the way to work.
I'll pick you up in the morning.
Pick me up for school in the morning.
Another meaning can be to energize. In this case, dinner might pick you up, or a cup of coffee may pick you up.
