I bought my 2013 Nissan Pathfinder SV with about 56000 miles and actually it reaches 63400, So my concern is about the transmission fluid, not because I have problems but I'm wondering do I have to have it checked or just replace it?
Any advice on it please?

I would change it if you plan to keep the vehicle long term. There's lots of threads and how-to's on this site.

I bought my 2017 pathfinder brand new , and I just changed transmission fluid at 41 k and I would recommend doing it , i was able to see the old fluid it was pretty black , I did mine at dealer , I could of do it myself but for 199$ For labor ,fluid, etc just did it to dealer , since my car has 120 k xtra warranty bumper to bumper , I’ll let dealer bother with it and if something goes wrong with transmission, he can’t blame me for doing my self

Go have the dealer do it & keep the receipt.
How'd that work out for you?

You had a dealer change it, you claimed you had no issues or noises going into it and mysteriously AFTER you paid a dealer to change your CVT fluid you have problems and now you have to pay a $500 'good will' portion of a replacement CVT.

My point here is, I've never once heard of someone changing their own CVT fluid, properly, with an appropriate fluid have a problem unless they were having problems going into it and trying to fix it with a fluid change.

CVT scared me. Some 1,200 miles later after the fluid change the CVT started making a whining noise. Can't really blame anything but a badly designed CVT. All is good. Got a new CVT now to get the info and courage to try a CVT oil change myself.
