I am trying to create a Previous week and Next Week button:  However, I'm not sure what I am doing wrong right now;
$timestamp      = strtotime(date('Y-m-01', strtotime($date)));
    $caption     	= date("F Y", $timestamp);
   	$week_number 	= date("W");
	$year 			= date("Y");
	
	$date = !empty($_GET['d']) ? $_GET['d'] : 'Today';
	$prev = date('Y-m-01', strtotime("$date - 1 week"));
	$next = date('Y-m-01', strtotime("$date + 1 week"));
	$prev_link = '<a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?d=$prev" . '">Prev</a>' . PHP_EOL;
	$next_link = '<a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?d=$next" . '">Next</a>' . PHP_EOL;

It looks like you may be confusing the pattern for months with the pattern for weeks.  Please read this article and while you do that I will see if I can give you a design pattern that works.

$ts = !empty($_GET['d']) ? strtotime($_GET['d']) : strtotime('Today');
if (!$ts) $ts = strtotime('Today');
$prev = date('Y-m-d', $ts - 60*60*24*7);
$next = date('Y-m-d', $ts + 60*60*24*7);

$prev_link = '<a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?d=$prev" . '">Prev</a>' . PHP_EOL;
$next_link = '<a href="' . $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] . "?d=$next" . '">Next</a>' . PHP_EOL;

echo $prev_link . ' ' . $next_link;
