It looks like trefoil and white clover, among others, which are annual weeds. One thing you can do to help combat annual weeds is not let them go to seed. Keep mowing as often as you need to so they can't form seed heads.

You can use a post emergent herbicide to combat them now, but once the flower is present, they are in the end of their life cycle and the herbicides are not as effective. May just as well keep mowing at this point. Here are some articles that should help your weed management. You are basically dealing with annual and perennial weeds plus grassy weeds.
