Is the rim true? How many spokes does it have?

Generally speaking, if you tighten two adjacent spokes, one on each side of the hub, you risk creating a flat spot in the rim.

If the spoke in question is considerably looser than the others, try tightening it slowly and make sure it doesn't pull the rim with it. You can do this by having that portion of the rim next to the brake pad for reference.

There are too many nuances to trueing a wheel to explain here, my advice is to go slow and somehow keep track of which spokes you tighten and how many turns.
