urchin.js vs ga.js

I've recently had someone take a look at my Analytics and they informed me that they are getting an error message in reporting because I'm running both the urchin.js and ga.js on my site.  How do I find out which ads are still using urchin.js so I can get this fixed and have everything running ga.js?  Is that done in Analytics or AdSense...or both?

Urchin.js and ga.js are scripts used for Google Analytics and both are outdated.
You should be using analytics.js.

Remove references to urchin.js and ga.js from your site and install analytics.js tracking.
