What is this and how can I get rid of it? Or will it keep growing and become a problem?

Looks like filamentous algae (FA on the forum) - which kind, not sure. See below - good pics and mgt options.

Some filamentous algae, usually several genera as Cyanobacteria (bluegreen), are resistant to copper based products.

Look at pictures of Lyngbya and Pithophora to see if it's any of those. Read the descriptions of each and compare to what's in your pond.

Bill, care to elaborate on those 2 types of algae?

That algae is a mess I would not want. It is growing on a bare mud bottom. Nature demands that something grows in a fertile pond and what 'she' grows is sometimes not nice but it is something the that will tolerate the conditions.
