#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int main()
{
      string string1 = "Hh";
      
      cout << string1 << endl;
      
      if ( string1[0] == "H" )
      {
            cout << "is upper case " << endl;
      
      }
      return 0;
}

It is isupper() instead:

 if ( isupper( string1[0] ) )
      {
            cout << "is upper case " << endl;
     
      }


you have to include "stdlib.h" in your source file

Complete example:
#include <iostream>
#include <stdlib.h>
 
using namespace std;
 
int main()
{
      string string1 = "Hh";
      
      cout << string1 << endl;
      
      if ( isupper(string1[0]) )
      {
            cout << "is upper case " << endl;
      }
      return 0;
}

no, just <stdlib.h>  or "stdlib.h"

it is require by the isupper() function to work properly
