The nut is cut too low if its only on the first fret. There was a post a couple of months ago about filling with epoxy and something for extra strength. Have a search if you want to avoid the cost and bother of having a new nut installed.

Second thought. Is it buzzing on open strings? That's the nut. If its when you play at the first fret, it sounds like a fret dressing and leveling is needed.

you can also click the green link in my sig and look at the first post.

measure the neck's relief, and make sure that the strings arent touching the middle frets, when held as described.

if it is, then post back.

well if it's not on the fret wire and you can't fit a credit card in the gap, then you can safely try
a 1/4 Counter Clockwise turn of the truss rod.
dont force the turn and let it settle in tune.

or you know, you can leave it, maybe work on swapping out the nut eventually.
