Is there any way to see how many pacekt collisions there are?

Not from the nic. Some server drivers may have visible counters, but not (usually) on end user PCs. You can see it from the switch side if you have managed switches.
In this day and age, if you are seeing collisions, then you have a duplex mismatch. These are late collisions and is detrimental to performance.
If you have a half duplex network, collisions are 100,000% NORMAL and nothing to worry about.
