This question is too basic; it can be definitively and permanently answered by a single link to a standard internet reference source designed specifically to find that type of information.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
According to Oxford Dictionary, a week is a period of seven days, but a workweek is from Monday to Friday.
I’d say it depends on the context.
Again, context is all.
"I was going to do that in the week," for example, contrasts with "...at the weekend" and so week there does not include the weekend.
"The week ending 29 July 2012" obviously does include the weekend.
