I am trying to figure out which of my skills I have already visited trainers for, so I wanted to know if there is an easy way to figure out which skills I have trained in, or if I need to go to every trainer and check.

No, the different icons on the various skill levels just indicate if there's a major change or bonus (called a Milestone) to that skill when you take that level.

enter image description here

In this sreenshot, the first point in Alchemy grants the Milestone "A failed experiment now results in an unstable potion" bonus. The second point in Alchemy does not grant any Milestone bonuses, so it is blank until you've taken it, and then the square gets a little "I" symbol in it (see the first point in Lockpicking in this screenshot, for example).

If there are any "green" highlighted skill points, this means that you've got a piece of gear or Destiny card that is giving you a bonus to that skill.

As far as I'm aware, there's no way to determine if you've visited any particular skill trainer without talking to them and asking them to train you. You'll be informed that they've already taught you when you try to pay them, and the option to take training will be grayed out.

Agreed. I found it painful to remember. The messages aren't helpful, either, because I'm pretty sure you'll see the "You're not in the right range to be trained" failure message before you see the "You've already trained with them" failure message, leading to much anger if you respecced thinking you could get training from them.. – Sterno Feb 20 '12 at 18:33
@Sterno, yeah. The other problem I have is it won't tell you what skill they train unless you're in the right range - sometimes I'll talk to someone and it will say "your skill is too high" - but doesn't say what skill is too high. – agent86 Feb 20 '12 at 18:38
