I'm no cool season turf guy but even I can see that lawn looks like "damnit". Not sure, but it looks like somebody tried to starve it to death... Weeds would be the least of my concerns at this point.

Ted is right. Clumps could be poa annua, or more likely a type of cheap perennial rye or maybe some leftover annual rye from pervious overseedings. Can you see any seed heads? Ligule? Boat shape leaf tip? Looks like the bluegrass is still dormant, but the rye is greened up. This lawn needs some tender loving care--and when you overseed this fall--stay with the top-quality seed.

I always use top quality seed. That sounds about right that it could be rye. The lawn looks pretty good during the summer when it is peak growing season just now everything is just starting to green so that would make sense it is rye. Should I be concerned or is this normal for a fescue/bluegrass/rye lawn in very early growing season? No seed heads. I dont remember seeing a ligule just looks like lawn grass to me.
