I have a Torch 9800 myself, so I might not be one to help, but I don't believe you can delete a specific text message before you open it. You can delete the conversation before you open it, but you have to open the message to delete it, I think.

Click your Messages icon. You should be able to highlight the message in question with your cursor (without clicking it) then press your menu key and select Delete. It's been a while since I've used a pre-BB10 phone so I hope what I'm telling you is accurate.
