They have similar leaves but this is not Clover.
It is called Wood Sorrel and is a type of upright Oxalis. You will likely see more of it without doing anything as it is a common weed.
Here is our page on it: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/oxalis-yellow-woodsorrel

I incorrectly called it 'lemongrass' when I was a child because it has a sharp lemony taste if you chew it.
