New bike and chain comes up sometimes and gets stuck and jams til you release the pedal. Only happened today. But it's only the second time the bike has been out since buying it. Will try and upload a picture.

Does it just need better lube on the chain?

if its new from the shop,take it back for setting up.Other than that,I'd try adjusting the limits on the front derailleur.looks like it's thrown the chain

Limits will not effect chain suck what so ever. You may have a bottom bracket that is too short giving you the wrong chain line. You may also have a chain that is not the correct speed for your drive train. Sometimes a bent chainring can cause chain suck issues also.
