I think I can use euclidean distance between two points as A(x1,y1) and B(x2,y2) as d = sqrt((x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2)).
But is there any meaning to Line of sight with this?

Line of sight doesn't matter unless you have some sort of obstacle or direction to something else. Are there objects on the grid besides the 2 points?

Yeah some times a hole ,or some mass in between.

Assuming you know the coordinates of all the points and obstacles (and holes?), you can follow the below steps.
Points P1(x1,y1) and P2(x2,y2). Let obstacle be O(x3,y3).
Check the distance between P1 and P2. Compare it with that of P1->O + O->P2. if both are the same, them O lies between P1 and P2 and is in LoS.
Euclidean distance between two points -> sqrt((x2-x1)^2+(y2-y1)^2))
