On layer 2 switches you can still have a L3 interface but it is only used for management. So typically unless you change it, it will be vlan 1 eg.

vlan 1

ip address

ip default-gateway

where is a routed interface on either a router or layer 3 switch.

You should not use the vlan 1 interface as a default-gateway for any of your client PC as it is purely to allow you to access the switch.
