What to do if I owe and he owes more to subsbut he will not pay off the subs and get waivers?

I owe my general contractor 6 k but I am asking him to get lien waivers from all the subs, some of whom I don’t even know, before final payment. I have already paid a sub which I did not think Ishould do and now another is calling about non payment from the GC. Any advice how to move forward? Can that sub put a lien on my house? Should I pay off the sub but how do I know for sure what the GC owes him if the GC won’t talk to me?
