I was wondering if there is a way to call an automation from the Journey Builder. I'm new to Marketing Cloud and need some help here.

There is no standard approach/activity to do so. Standard functionality only allows you to do it the opposite way and trigger a journey from an automation.
However there is the possibility to create custom journey builder activities. Furthermore Marketing Cloud provides APIs that let you interact with automations and also start one immediately. If you combine those two concepts you can create a custom activity that interacts with this API and triggers an automation. But this requires some coding skills and a server or cloud service to host the custom activity.
