I am a student on F1 visa, i sent an asylum application last year but application was not accepted since there were some parts missing in it. After that I am still looking at situation in my country and waiting for it to change so i may not need to apply for asylum anymore. I have to travel outside country and will need to extend my visa since it expired a while ago. Is it ok to do that since my application was not accepted they wont be keeping any records of my asylum intent or they will have in their system and my visa can get denied.
Based on your question, I will assume you are not a Canadian citizen. While a US Consulate will accept a visa application from a citizen of a country other than the one in which the Consulate is located, there is nothing that requires the Consulate to act on the application. Doing so is a matter of discretion by the Consular officials, and they often tell the applicant to apply through the US Consulate in their home country.
You may wish to consult with an experienced immigration attorney before taking any further actions for some professional legal advice.

Your asylum application should not impact whether or not you will be issued an F-1 visa.
