I know too little to be of any help. However, if there's any way that you could post a video of the uke being played, it's possible that one of the luthiers in the forums could diagnose the problem for you. If you do make a video, maybe you could show a close-up of the problem fret. Even a photo of the fret might help.

well I took a little better look at ukulele troubles forum and i think i might have found my problem? I think the fret is a little tierd. how do i fix that? Would it be cheaper just to buy a new ukulele? ( i want an upgrade it was my first uke and i want a oscar schmidt concert uke)

I dont know how to post a video eigther
