I can't see anything in the pic, too distorted, however, just a guess would be an Aiptastia or Majano, in either case, it should be killed off.

Yes indeed.....it appears to be a Majano. Use some "Joes' Juice" to kill it.

Is their another way to remove like by possible taking a knife and scrape off the rock?
No. By trying to scrape it off you can't get to the "root" deep in the rock. You can pull it out like you did and put drops of lemon juice right in the mouth (center) of the creature or boiling water but the boiling water can be problematic if it gets on the other coral.
