Patchy Lawn - Help a new homeowner

I recently bought a house in Sullivan County, Tennessee and the lawn is particularly patchy. Being a typical millennial, I do not have a clue as to how to fix this. Is it a simple matter of needing to use a "weed and feed" on the lawn or is it something a little more complex. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
