What are you writing? This is all handled by the network stack, so a normal application wouldn't even know this was going on.

If the IP is already bound to the adapter, you have no way of knowing that because if you try to ping it using the easy and normal methods, you'll only get a response from your own machine, like "ping localhost".

If you try to do this before the IP is bound to the adapter, you don't have an IP yet, so you can't use the easy and normal methods here either because they rely on the IP already being set. So the only way to do this would be digging deeper into the network stack and crafting your own packets, and that take admin permissions to be able to do that. A normal user wouldn't be able to do that.

In the real world, DHCP servers can be setup to do this themselves, and it's also managed by reserving ranges of IP addresses for static allocation, "ad-hoc allocation", and other ranges for dynamic allocation. Today, you would be hard pressed to get an IP that was in use already from the server.
