Assuming you know the coordinates of the point you want to mark,
something like:

Show[Plot[x^2,  {x, 0, 1},  DisplayFunction -> Identity],
Graphics[{PointSize[0.02],  Point[{1/2, 1/4}]}],
DisplayFunction -> \$DisplayFunction]

will put a larger dot on the selected point.  (You can of course write
the Plot and Graphics statements as separated named expressions, then
put the names into Show.)

To put a text label near this point, read about (or bring up the Help
message) for

Text[expr, coords, offset]

which will easily do the job.
