Start by ensuring your site is on Google Search Console, once your site is added you can request Google crawl the specific property. With your site a part of Google Search Console you will want to select the site in your search console and add the problem URL in the search field. Goole will bring up the information it has on that specific URL and gives you the option to crawl or recrawl depending on what it knows.
If you’re worried about your site being indexed you can add your sitemap to Google to help ensure all of your posts are added. Install and activate an SEO plugin, for this we recommend Yoast and once you install and activate the plugin an SEO section should be added to your admin area. Under SEO, General, scroll down to XML sitemaps and click the question mark. The area should expand to allow you to get the URL for your sitemap you can submit to Google Search Console.
