Are you able to take a picture of it? Maybe with your phone? This will help us to identify and then suggest management options. If you can get a picture of it in the ground and then pick the plant and take a picture of the whole plant from root to top, then one more close up of a leaf, that would be ideal.
You can then attach it to your reply here and we will see if we can confirm identification.

Thank you for the picture. I can't be sure, but it looks like a Self-heal (Purnella vulgaris). If you want to let it go to flower, we would be able to give a more definitive ID.
Some info on Purnella vulgaris: a member of the mint family and like mint is a rapid colonizer. It can be hand pulled, but it regenerates from shoot fragments. It also spreads by rhizomes, stolons and seeds.
Here is an info sheet with picture:
I hope this helps.
