A dirty drive usually shows up at boot. You get a message that one or more drives need checking - press any key to stop the check. It's best to let the check run - can take a while and it's not a good idea to abort the check while it is running.

After the check has finished, there should be a message 'drive C:\ is clean' or similar.

Dual booting with W10 can occasionally show a false dirty status (from Win7) due to 10's hybrid shutdown state being seen as an error condition.

I've seen cmd methods of changing dirty status, but not a good idea IMHO.

Have you already tried booting into Safe Mode and deleting said file?

This message is typically the result of an improper shutdown which could leave the file system in an inconsistent state. This needs to be dealt with, whatever the cause. Do as wasnot was suggested.
