I have a micro ATX motherboard in a LIAN LI PC-K58. The case has two fans, one in the front and one in the back, but I can only connect one fan since my motherboard only has one of these connectors (Excluding the connector that is connected to my CPU fan). Is there like an adapter of some sort that I can buy to connect the other fan?

The one I am trying to connect is a 3 pin plug.

No, these motherboards support only one. There may be a connector but its not advised.

So no is the answer.

Try connecting them directly to the PSU. You will not have control over it. But it would work.

Directly to the PSU? I have an XFX 650W and I don't have any 3 pin connector.

well the third pin would be used for the mobo to count rpm but its not needed so its a 3pin plug but really only 2 wires.

I have CM690 and the the case fans had 3-pin connectors along with 4 pin molex. All my 3 pin connectors were taken so i connected the molex of the side panel fan to the molex of the PSU! I think that's what you need to do.
