Yarn almost split - help!

Hello!
I've been knitting a scarf for my husband and in the middle of the yarn I noticed that it is half split- some of the threads of the yarn are broken - does it make sense? So I can see it in the middle of the scarf.
What should I do? Should I weave in another piece of yarn over the damaged yarn?
Thank you very much for your help!

If you can hide it by weaving in other yarn that would be fine. If you want to fix the split you can drop the stitches down to that one and knit/purl it properly.

I think she means the actual yarn is split, not she split it while knitting...

you can go over it but you might need to work with it a little to get it to cover. Or you can rip back and drop that part down and start knitting farther down the yarn and weave in the ends

Yes this exactly, the yarn is split. It was that way in the hank (don't know the exact term in english - yarn ball?). I continued to knit farther though. So I can't rip back. So I will just cover it with another piece of yarn and weave the ends in, ok?
And no knots anywhere, is that right?
