Vitamin K:
Self administration of Vitamin K is not recommended - in fact it is downright dangerous. Any deficiency of vitamin K can lead to serious disease which must be treated by your doctor and an overdose of this vitamin is also dangerous. 

A group of vitamins that are all fat-soluble called quinones. Vitamin K is essential for synthesis of several proteins in the liver that are involved in the blood-clotting process. Deficiencies cause poor coagulation of the blood.
Deficiencies are rare because virtually any reasonable diet provides enough quinones for the body to manufacture a more than ample supply of vitamin K in the gastrointestinal tract. Excessive doses of Vitamin K can cause liver damage, jaundice and rapid deterioration of red blood cells.

Quinones:
Quinones are polycyclic aromatic compounds.
Quinones play an important role in the transport of electrons in all live tissue. Menaquinone (Vitamin K) is a powerful antioxidant and assists to protect the body from harmful free radicals.

Vitamin K occurs naturally in green leafy vegetables, eggs, kelp, alfalfa, dairy products (yogurts) and liver (pork liver).

Vitamin K1:
Yellow, viscous oil soluble vitamin found in green leafy vegetables.

Vitamin K2:
Pale yellow, crystalline, fat soluble vitamin.
Vitamin K2 is more unsaturated than Vitamin K1 and is synthesized in the gastrointestinal tract. Occurs in  fish tissue.

Vitamin K3:
Vitamin K3 is mostly known as Menadione, a synthetic form of Vitamin K or menadiol sodium phosphate which is a water soluble form of Vitamin K.
