Hello Dylan,

Close Personalization, then double check in the the hidden C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes folder for a Custom.theme listed. This will be the Unsaved Theme in Personalization. See if you may be able to delete it from this location instead.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Did you close the Personalization window first? Will it let you delete it in Personalization now?
