Do I need to do anything if my return was rejected because i filed jointly with my spouse?

 I started to file separately, but the then I filed jointly with my spouse (as I got married last year), so my SSN is listed on our joint tax return i.e. MFJ. In the meantime, my single return was rejected as it should be. How do I delete it if it has been transmitted and rejected by IRS? I do not need to correct errors, I just need to delete it. 

For next year's filing 2017,file by April 15, 2019, I will file jointly with my husband's login to Turbo Tax. I will still need to access Turbo Tax for my previous years tax returns 2016 and before. 

Any further steps that I need to take?
