This would be a setting that is default off (for privacy reasons for people who hate read receipts). But when it is toggled on, it would show that you've read a message, and when it was read. This timestamp could be placed directly next to the timestamp for that message.
This also could be achieved by a two tier setting, the first tier being "Messages will be marked as read when viewed." and the second tier being "Read receipts will include the time read." This would be extremely useful for people who use Discord just to text as well.
