I've had this succulent for a month now and I've noticed another succulent grow out from the middle of it?? What's going on? Should I cut it and propagate it?

Looks like it's making a flower stalk. Succulents make pretty flowers. The name is on the tip of my tongue but someone else will come along with it soon.

It looks like some kind of Echeveria. The bloom should be a good show!

I've always been told that one is called echeveria sleepy. I have a few. Yellow and red flowers. Very pretty.

Echeverias do that often, making a flower stalk at the middle. Just let it grow and enjoy the show. At least it is not a monocarpic succulent, so it will just continue on growing once the blooms has faded. Sometimes, depending on the cultivar, after blooming, it may also attempt a little new offset anywhere up and down the bloomstalk. But typically the new ones may form right at the base of the mother plant. When that happens, just allow the offset to grow a bit more before your separate from mommy plant.
