You probably want to check the free space in the tablespaces associated with objects owned by CLMDATA.

select unique tablespace_name from user_tables; and do the same for user_indexes.

I suspect there might be pretty pictures for tablespaces in the gui, but I haven't looked at it on 12c yet.

Read the concepts manual to understand how things are stored.
