Whatever you like best. Shortbow as the secondary weapon is the best choice though.

What's a highly effective combo though? Dual daggers? Dagger and pistol? Dual pistols? Sword and pistol? Etc..

I've been enjoying dual pistols whith dual daggers alt for the last 20 levels or so... i'm 30 now and having a blast. But really about any weapon combo you pick is gonna e viable with the skills you can choose to complement them. shaortbow was fun too as is sword pistol etc...

So sword/pistol is better than dagger/pistol?

There is no "better," they just have different playstyles. Sword/Pistol focuses on tanking mobs in your Black Powder and AoEing them down with your auto attacks and Pistol Whip. Dagger/Pistol focuses on easy access stealths and backstabs by making use of 1 initiative Heartseekers(if traited properly) and Black Powder's Smoke combo field.

Dagger/Pistol is incredibly good *for opponents below 50%* as you can keep on them and perform massive crits with heart seeker... even after the debuff, if you switch your weapons in at the right time dagger/pistol is incredibly powerful

I just started a Thief last night and I am mostly preferring Sword+Pistol.

I prefer dagger/dagger for over anything. I love death blossom; gives me a way to evade, apply a strong dot, and hits multiple foes. Pistol whip is nice as well with sword/pistol, but I prefer the abilities D/D gives you. For my secondary, I mainly run with a short bow when I'm dealing with groups, but for single target, pistol/pistol.

stop looking for what is best and just play the game
you're likely going to be bored as hell later if you don't play at your own whims
