If you post a photo, describe your setup better, and list what you are doing for CO2 and fertilizers, we'll be in a much better position to answer your questions.

Algea outbreaks are common in newly setup planted tanks. If you can't afford nutrients at this time, then about the only thing you can do is remove it manually & hope for the best.
