Checking my case status today, and still says initial review. However, at the very bottom, there is an OMB control number and an expiration date. What is an OMB control number, and what is it for?

A number issued by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act. Forms issued by the federal government are required to have one of these numbers on them. For the purpose of your case status the number is meaningless.
