Can you please if this weed for me? It has small yellow flowers & acts like a ground cover. Thank you, Kay

This looks like Indian mock strawberry, which is a non-native invasive weed. It's not a true strawberry.

Do not let it spread by strawberry fruit seeds or by its many runners. It's easy to pull in moist soil--just be sure you get out the base and roots.
