I've started talking to this girl but she recently started bringing up her ex and of course gets awkward what to do?

What kinds of things is she saying and in what context? If she's just complaining about what a jerk he was, then it's easy to dismiss it all. If she keeps bringing him up, talking about good times and things they did together, that would actually annoy me more because I wouldn't feel like there was any closure.
If she seems to linger in memories, just tell her you're not comfortable with hearing about it, and that you don't think she would like it if you began to do this. Or tell her you'll let her vent and get it all off her chest so she doesn't have to bring him up any more and hope that will be the end of it. If he's an ass, you can tell her that the more she focuses on the bad in him, the less she is focusing on the good in you.0
