clear all;clc;close all;
x=1:10;y=1:10;
plot(x,y,'ro')
text([1:10]-1.5,[1:10]+1,'Point X')
axis([-1 12 -1 12])

It depends on your plotted data.
text(x,y,'your_text')
will draw your_text in the position (x,y) within your figure. To draw text in upper right corner of your plot,
x = max(x_variable);
y = max(y_variable);
But bear in mind to subtract something from those values in order to place the text within the plot, otherwise it'll be printed just in the top-right corner and you won't be able to see it. For example:
x = max(x_variable)-10;% adapt the subtracted value to your needs
y = max(y_variable)-10;
