It shows I have one new message but there are no new messages in Messages window

I get the 1 runread message problem all the time on Skype for Android, and on Skype for Windows Desktop if I'm on a call, I can't get rid of the last unread message notifier until I'm off the call. Seems like it's a cross-platform issue with many variants, so I think we should look elsewhere for help rather than confining this to the iOS section.

This is still happening to myself and a few friends of mine.  We all have skype on our PC and our phones.  When on mobile the skype notification comes in and when I go to check the message nothing appears.  It is only until I shut the ap down completely and reopen it that I get the message...IF it feels like giving it to me.

I have the solution for this bug ! at least to quit the stupid notification...
Just right click on the "recent" tab and press "Mark all as read" and VOILA! the fake notification is gone.

I was able to get rid of the notification by deleting my IM history under pirvacy. But keep in mind that it deletes EVERYTHING.
