Try this:
x <- structure(list(day = 19, C1 = structure(1L, .Label = c("", "C1"
), class = "factor"), C2 = structure(2L, .Label = c("", "C2"), class =
"factor"),
C3 = structure(1L, .Label = c("", "C3"), class = "factor"),
Q1 = structure(2L, .Label = c("", "Q1"), class = "factor"),
Q2 = structure(2L, .Label = c("", "Q2"), class = "factor"),
Q3 = structure(1L, .Label = c("", "Q3"), class = "factor")), .Names =
c("day",
"C1", "C2", "C3", "Q1", "Q2", "Q3"), row.names = "8", class = "data.frame")
paste(x[1, 1], do.call(paste, c(x[1, x != ""][, -1], list(sep="_"))), sep=" -")
# Output looks like this
> paste(x[1, 1], do.call(paste, c(x[1, x != ""][, -1], list(sep="_"))), sep=" -")
[1] "19 -C2_Q1_Q2"
> x[1, 2] <- "C1"
> paste(x[1, 1], do.call(paste, c(x[1, x != ""][, -1], list(sep="_"))), sep=" -")
[1] "19 -C1_C2_Q1_Q2"
