If the RPM install didn't work, it won't be installed on your system, so you don't have to clean it up. If you have forgotten about RPMs that you installed but no longer need and you want to rid yourself of them, you can list all the RPMs you have on your system with:
Also, if you want to see if Python is installed:
rpm -qa | grep "python"
Next, you can remove the package with:
rpm -e packagename.rpm
Hopefully that answers the first part of your question!
