Alfred already described a way to create a list of individuals that use a particular source. If the list is empty, then the source is unused. Well, strictly speaking it's a list of citations where the source is used and the citations can be for individuals or facts. But the principle remains that if the list is empty then the source is unused.
I would also point out that when you go through the dialog to delete a source, it will alert you if you are trying to delete a source that is still in use. That's very helpful as a final check.
What doesn't exist as far as I can tell is a list of unused sources under List -> Sources. By contrast, there is a list of unused places under List -> Places. What I think also might be helpful in both cases is that the main list of sources or places could contain a little one column flag of some kind which tells you which of the sources or places are used or unused.
