WhatsApp recognizes which of your contacts are using WhatsApp by accessing your phone's address book. You can delete a contact from your phone's address book, but you can't delete a contact within WhatsApp.
To delete a contact from your address book:
  1. Open WhatsApp and go to the Chats tab.
  2. Tap
    new chat
    .
  3. Tap the name of the contact you’d like to delete.
  4. Tap the contact’s name at the top.
  5. Tap
    more options
    > View in address book
  6. Tap
    more options
    > Delete.
Then, refresh your WhatsApp contacts:
Open WhatsApp > tap
new chat

more options
> Refresh.
Deleting a contact from your phone's address book won't delete the chat history you have with them. You can learn how to delete a chat in this article.
