There is an example of building a digital clock using this chip. You can take the LCD part from there and compare it to yours.
Check the code of picnote https://picnote.blogspot.com/2008/06/ds1307-pic16f877a.html.
It contains LCD code in C.
You can download MikroC evaluation and it will work with the code.
