add DISTINCT to your query ....
select distinct specific_p, qty from database where specific_p = 68030 and 
qty > 0

For you second requirement, get them all, and just use the first one ... 
can't remember exact syntax but something like

select specific_p from database where specific_p like %68030% limit 1
or maybe it's TOP 1. Can't remember. Check your Sql Server docs.
