To check if there is any security threat from the apps, scan your apps using Google Play Protect (Settings --> Biometrics and Security --> Google Play Protect --> Scan).
Needless to say, only use Google Play store and Galaxy store to install apps.
To check if the app is installed on your phone, go to settings --> Apps. If the app is listed there, you can click on it and then uninstall.

@Flintstone: If you're concerned then you can also head to Settings > Battery and device care > Device protection > Scan phone, to see if this flags any malware or suspicious activity. You may also wish to check Settings > Apps > Choose default apps > Phone app, and see if DialPad is listed here. Also, head to Settings > Apps > Tap the 3 lines to the right of 'Your apps' > Show system apps > Toggle this on > OK > Check the list of apps.
