I have a web aspx page that has a button that once it is clicked, it updates a table and response.redirects to a pdf file.

When I click on the back arrow of the in the pdf, the field that is supposed to be displayed is not displayed until I manually hit the F5 key.

In another words, the 'Complete' label is not visible when you go into the page, but needs to be visible when I return from the pdf.

That behavior is browser dependent, but the back button on recent browser use the cached rendering and doesn't refresh or execute code.
To prevent that just add an onunload event

How do I do that?   I also noticed that the 'Complete' label will appear if I don't redirect to another page on clicking the button

Just add an empty anonymous function as the listener.
The mere presence of the event listener is enough to disable the caching when using back.

window.onunload = function (){};
or
window.addEventListener ("unload", function (){});
or
$( window ).unload(function() {};
