Its probably a weed, but hard to tell from an email. I would take a cutting to your local garden center and ask an expert, and if they do confirm that it is a weed, you can purchase a weed and feed fertilizer for your lawn. But be careful when applying fertilizers in the Summer months; set your applications per the manufacturers recommendations when applying any weed and feed fertilizer to your yard. Good Luck!
