He should think of himself as Kal El. he IS Kal El, just as much as he is Clark Kent. Him thinking otherwise is just more of that "Krypton dosent matter to me" garbage from MOS.

Its like people expect Clark to act like he never found out he's an alien with powers, even when a spaceship with holograms tells him the truth.
I don't think he should discard his heritage or hate being called Kal-El, but I think, purely from a time standpoint, it's fine if he's called Clark primarily. He's been Clark for much of his natural life and while he may find the revelation of him being Kal-El as revelatory, you can't expect him to shed his adopted name.
