Question

Should I be worried about this: &redir_esc=rsion/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1 MMS/LG-Android-MMS-V1.0/1.2"

Will somebody tell me if this is a bad thing:

65.29.208.149 - - [06/Mar/2017:22:50:16 -0500] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 200 7229 “http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&redir_esc=&client=ms-android-americamovil-us&source=android-search-app&v=133247963&qsubts=1488858620290&action=devloc&q=springfield+computer+repair&v=133247963” “Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 2.3.6; en-us; LG-L38C Build/GRK39F) AppleWebKit/533.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/4.0 Mobile Safari/533.1 MMS/LG-Android-MMS-V1.0/1.2”

I found it in my logs and am hoping that &redir is not a bad thing

That was a difficult one to understand :)

So your access logs has nothing to do with scripts. That is just information about which pages are visited on your server, with some details about the visitor like referral, browser and IP.

If you’re “noticing something” about your site, then make sure it’s up-to-date (everything, both server, services, website system and plugins+themes).

Regarding your search engine ranking, if you have multiple different types of content, then you will get a worse ranking, since the search engine doesn’t know what the priority is. This has something to do with SEO.

All in all, I don’t quite understand your question or problem.

The redir_esc has been part of the Google URLs for years. So far I cannot find any information on what it means. But you’re posting an access log, which means your server just logs the URL from the visitors referring website (if any or allowed). It doesn’t have any influence on your server.
