This forum is actually for electric guitars, but I'll help you anyway.

Is it a kind of buzz?

If so, the easiest way to fix it would be to take a small piece of paper (square centimeter or so) and fold it over once, to add some width, then place this between the string and the bridge, it will raise the action slightly, causing the buzz to go away.

EDIT: and to fix the codes in your sig, first move the to the front of the qoute, then add , and to the end, so it sits like this:

{Font=Impact} {Size=7} *Qoute here* {/size} {/font}

:except replace the braces with brackets.

You can call me Aaron.

Most likely the nut slot for that string is too low. Fret the string btw the 2nd and 3rd fret with your finger closest to the 2nd. Fretted as such check for a tiny gap btw the bottom of the string and top of the 1st fret. If there is no gap then the slot is too low.
