Treating sub-floor stains

Recently purchased a new home, rather new to the home repair arena. I pulled up carpet today in a bedroom (we were expecting issues based upon urine odor). I have attached a picture of what we are looking at. Looking for guidance on what our options for treating this situation are. Is this looking acceptable for bleach/vinegar treatment then oil based sealer? Hoping this isn't bad enough to require subfloor replacement!

Skip the bleach and vinegar and just seal it with this.

BIN will do it but we usually get the job done with just an oil based sealing primer in our units.

thanks for the feedback guys. still in process of pulling up carpet in other rooms, then off to cleaning up the floors and sealing. Thankfully the first room i showed appears to be the worst of them.

I would also use a pigmented shellac like Zinnser's BIN although if the stains aren't too bad an oil base primer will work fine. The main thing is to apply a good fluid coat of primer to seal in the odor!
