New to lawn care. How do I get started with getting rid of weeds?

As you can see in the photos below, the grass seems to have weeds spread throughout the lawn (a noticeably large patch can be seen in the background of the first photo.) I'd like to have a nice-looking lawn, but this is the first time I've owned a home with a lawn so I'm not really sure where to begin. Do I need to invest in some Round-up and attack these guys with it? I don't want to hurt the healthy parts of my lawn though. I bought a mower with mulching capability, but haven't mowed yet. I'm guessing it's not a good idea to mulch-mow over weeds?

If someone can provide me with advice or some resources with good info on ridding my yard of weeds, I'd appreciate it. FYI, this is in Texas.
