I would like to know whether my CALs license is configured correctly.

Windows 2003 Server -> Control Panel -> Licensing -> Choose Licensing Mode -> my configuration is "Per Device or Per User"  

Administrative Tools -> Terminal Server Licensing -> My configuration is "Windows Server 2003 - TS Per User CAL"

Is above licensing configured correctly?
I did not see TS CAL issue to any computer. in Issued To, Issued On.....still empty.

That's normal for "Per User" TS CALs; quote from the 822134 article below:
"Currently, Windows Server 2003 does not manage User CALs. This means that even though there is a User CAL in the license server database, the User CAL will not be decremented when it is used. This does not remove administrators from End User License Agreement (EULA) requirements to have a valid terminal server (TS) CAL for each user. Failure to have a User CAL for each user, if Device CALs are not being used, is a violation of the EULA."

Yes, you won't see anything for "Per User" TS CALs.
