i dont think you can (someone else should confirm) but you can restrict which machines can access the device and limit the possibility of more than 1 person having access...maybe setup 1 machine to have access and have anyone who wants to use it rdp into that

Nope - there isn't a way to limit the number of concurrent ASDM or HTTP sessions. The most effective mechanism is to limit the systems which have access or set up a central GUI admin server (as akalbfell mentioned).

even if I restrict the access to two machines then there is a possibility of two people making config changes at the same time...correct ?I don't want this changes happening at the same time ...

yeh there is the chance which is why you should limit it to just 1 machine. this is also a good security practice.
you can also make them use the ASDM, if someone saves changes it will ask you to refresh. little bit easier than checking to see if anyone else is connected
