Remove what partition?
The unallocated space is not a partition. It's unallocated space.
You can add the unallocated space to C via Windows Disk Management IF AND ONLY IF the unallocated space is immediately to the right of C, contiguous with it, as displayed in Windows Disk Management.
If the unallocated space is anywhere else, you will have to use a tool such as Partition Wizard bootable disc.
