    Open to where all the conversations are listed. That's the main messages page. Find the Conversation that you want to delete and swipe to the left. A red delete button should appear. Just tap on it and the entire conversation is deleted.
    Use your phone number on your iPhone instead of your Apple ID.

    I am sorry but What and What? All you have to do since you can only get iMessages and send them from iPad to another IOS device is turn off your iMessages completely on the iPad and they will never reach the iPad, Only the phone.

    IMO the op didn't specify if they wanted just that message gone or never to get them on the iPad. My directions were for the latter. Go into settings then messages then turn off iMessage. If that was unclear I'm sorry

    Nothing for you to be sorry about at all...

    I thought though this statement by the OP was clear.

    If you would like to continue receiving iMessages on your iPad but just not phone number related that is one thing. If you want no iMessages on your iPad that's another.

    For the latter on iPad, go Settings, Messages, turn on iMessage.

    If you just want to stop getting iMessages on iPad to your phone number go on iPad and go settings, messages, and leave iMessages turned on but uncheck your phone number. Then you can use your iPad for iMessages but only with your Apple ID email.

    You can either swipe to the right in the message list and then tap on "Delete" or you can tap on "Edit" in the upper left corner of the messages list, then tap on the circle in front of each message you want to delete, and then tap on "Delete" in the bottom right corner.

    Or, when you're on the message field, press on a message and then tap the "More" option. This allows you to delete single messages by taping the dot to the left of each message. Or you can delete the entire thread by tapping "Delete All" in the upper left corner. This leaves the person in the message list, but deletes all the messages.
