These are created with the Color Sampler tool (shares space with the Eyedropper tool "I".) You can drag the crosshair off the canvas OR Option+Click to delete one OR click "Clear" in the options bar to delete all of them. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/viewing-histograms-pixel-values.html#view_color_values_in_an_image  Jane

Hi The light blue 1 is the count tool. So select the count tool in the tool bar and in the options bar click clear. The cross hair with the 1 is the colour sampler tool. Select the color sampler tool in the toolbar and in the options bar click on "Clear All" Dave

Hi Jeff You have your answer, but II'll add my 2 cents worth.  The colour sampler tool is one of those that you might not use a lot, but is solid gold when you have a need for it.  Use it in conjunction with the Info panel as below.
