Is the app open or in use? If you're not sure, open Activity Monitor and check if there are any processes related to that app. If there are, quit them and try deleting the app again.

If it is a legit app, try googling something like, "Uninstall app name." If it is malware, use something like Malware Bytes or another anti-malware app to remove it and disinfect your computer.
