You could use the lastwarn function to reset, then check the last warning. Granted this might not work if the warning you are interested in gets overwritten by a subsequent warning that you would rather discard.
% reset the lastwarn message and id
lastwarn('', '');
% call the function that might throw a warning
% now if a warning was raised, warnMsg and warnId will not be empty.
[warnMsg, warnId] = lastwarn();
% you can check the warning message or id, or just throw the warning as an error if desired
error(warnMsg, warnId);
