    The issues is a concern only for us both.

    Is usage of "us both" correct here?

    I mean the issue is concerned only for us(you and me).

    Not really. Here are some correct sentences:
    "The issue is a concern for us both." / "The issue concerns us both." (I'll use the latter form as an example.)
    "The issue concerns both of us."
    "The issue concerns only the two of us."
    "The issue concerns us both, but no one else."
    "The issue concerns both of us, but no one else."
