Do you pinch out the yellow flowers on bok choy? Is it going to seed?

Yep it is going to seed, you can cut off the base of the bolt (the stem of the flower). For some varieties of pak choi these flowers are edible. Once your plant does bolt the leaves tend become more bitter, still edible just something to note.
