Sodium is the same for everyone. Its a good thing to watch, both because consuming too much sodium can contribute to other health problems and because too much sodium can slow your weight loss. If you're not eating packaged foods, you probably won't have issues with sodium. If I get more than 1700-1800, I'll see it on the scale the next day, but I'm sure that that is different for everyone.
Other things are percentages of your total calories, so they'll be different for everyone. My current recommended calorie range is 1580-1930. Your recommended calorie range is a function of how many calories you burn each week and how quickly you're trying to lose weight. Since my goal is way off (deliberately) and my calorie burning goal (often exceeded but currently not by much) is 3200 calories per week, I have a fairly high calorie range, which I usually eat around the middle of.
In addition to the basics, I track sodium and fiber because I want to make sure that the former stays lower and the latter stays pretty high. I also track iron and calcium, because I'm perimenopausal (sometimes have more than one period per month) and have multiple family members with osteoperosis. I'm usually over the fiber range and am under on calcium maybe once a week. I'm within my ranges for most everything else every day, though if I'm off by less than 5 on anything, I'll ignore it.
When you're starting out, I'd worry about the basics (protein, carbs, fat, calories) and sodium and leave other things for when you're feeling confident that you can hit all of those numbers most days.
