The PCB looks good, though the trace to pin 5 might need to be a bit bigger. Try making the pads for the NC pins a little bit smaller, and that should free up a little room.

Looks good though!

Edit: is that resistor on the output .1 ohms? I can't tell if it's 1 or .1, and 1 is a little to high, in my opinion. A .22 or .1 ohm resistor would probably be better.

the trace to pin 5 is poor.I think you can use the room of pin 2.NC is no connections,so it is easy to deal.

isn't it so that pin one and 5 are internaly connected. so that if the trace to pin one is big the trace to pin 5 can be smaller.

the resitor in the output is a 10 ohm resistor with a coil soldert parralel on top of it. It supose to help keep the amp from osccilating.

You want as big of traces as possible to all the power pins. Internal bond wires can only handle so much current and this is why there are multiple supply voltage pins. If the trace to pin 5 is very short when small that is OK. It never hurts to have more trace width.
