Malware or false positive

Today malwarebytes found a supposedly redline stealer from some microsoft visual studio file. I have not touched my visual studio installation nor used the software in some time. I popped the file into virustotal but it said it was fine. Malwarebytes also found the same file on my laptop which I haven’t even opened in few months. I just let malwarebytes delete the file and rebooted my pc and now it found some other file, same situation with virustotal. There seems to be a lot of instances online where a random visual studio files are being flagged as malware. Wanting to know people’s opinion on this.
