I received a 2nd W2

I received a 2nd W2 form and my 1st refund has been refunded to me. I need to know if I can add that here in turbo tax as an amendment or would I have to mail the form to IRS?

You will need to amend the 2018 tax return to add the additional W-2.  An amended federal tax return, Form 1040X, can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.  The IRS will take up to 4 months or longer to process the amended tax return.  If taxes are owed after completing the amended return, you send a check with the amended return when it is mailed.  If the amended return has a tax refund, then the IRS will send you a refund check in the mail for the refund, the refund cannot be direct deposited.

The tax return should not be amended until the tax refund has been received from the IRS.
