Licensing information is available in the ArcGIS REST API:  Licenses—ArcGIS REST API: Administer your server | ArcGIS for Developers.  I don't think licensing information is available in Manager, but I may be wrong since I only use the REST API for administration.

Jamal, Joshua is correct - you won't find information regarding the number of cores in ArcGIS Server Manager but you will find it ArcGIS Server Admin.

Jamal, the screenshot you provided is returning the information in the default HTML format.  For information regarding the number of cores licensed, you'll need to view the page in JSON.  You can do this by appending "?f=pjson" at the end of the URL (so instead of "https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/admin/system/licenses" it will be "https://machine.domain.com/webadaptor/admin/system/licenses?f=pjson".

The licensing of Esri server products isn't always straightforward, and there are many legal aspects of licensing that Esri's software products do not take into account when activating/licensing the products.  For example, every ArcGIS Enterprise licenses comes with "enterprise geodatabase functionality," so what does it mean in the REST API when it says esriServerSDEEnterprise has a valid license but for 0 cores?  After all, you have to run code on something!

If your questions are focused on license compliance, focus on your architecture and what is deployed specifically and not what products are seeing/saying for their licenses.
