Edge 1030, how to clear missed notifications, make icon go away?

I have had the message icon. I check missed notifications and I have a message about needing help finding the bike alarm and to tap here to activate it. Taping on the screen does noting and the message and message icon will not go away. I cannot find any info about how to clear notifications. Garmin continues to disappoint me. Can anyone help me please?

When trying to post this, I got a message stating "Your posting frequency exceeded allowed rates. Please wait 5 minutes" but I have not posted anything in months. Again, Garmin makes me work to use their equipment. I paid too much for it to have to deal with all of the problems I have had.
