If you have two instances that means you have two independent instances running on that server. Hence No need to check for any dependencies.

However make sure that you have the necessary backups of required databases in the instance which you are going to delete / remove.

First Link helps you out to uninstall an instance from a clustered environment.
This link from MSDN gives you more insight on it.

Second link helps you to uninstall in a normal environment.

If you want to delete the default instance, hope this would be helpful too.
