There is no closed form symbolic solution for that equation. You
can find numeric solutions using FindRoot after given G, \[Mu]
and \[Sigma] numeric values. For example:
In[6]:= FindRoot[1 + Erfc[x] Log[x]/(2 Sqrt[2]), {x, .001, 10}]
Out[6]= {x->0.0499295}
Here, I've set G = \[Sigma] = 1 and \[Mu] = 0
