In our application, the error messages that are displayed, are unique to each data.
For example, if I add a user named "A", the error message will be displayed as "User A already exists"
I need to check the error message. I am unable to check, as the tool identifies the error message as a bitmap.
Is there any option to read the text in the bitmap, so that I can check whether the error message is correct or not.
If the error message is a standard dialog, its text should be kept in one of its properties. Please find this window in the object tree of your process in the Object Browser panel and inspect its properties on the Properties tab. The text can be stored in the WndCaption property, for example. It is also possible to store the text in a property of one of the child elements of the window (a label), so you can inspect their properties as well. If you do not find a property that contains the text, please tell us the window class of the error message (it is stored in the WndClass property) and the programming language your tested application is written in.

You should try to get the app to become an open application. Then the text will be visible to TC.
You might also want to look into the OCR functionality. It does mess up 5's and S's for example, but it will be a step in the right direction if you have no way of seeing the message window as an open object.
