There are several things to do when drawing a part with threaded features:

1. (I can't tell if you've done this already based on the picture attached) Define the threaded holes on the 3D model with the Hole command (or the Thread command).

2. On the drawing, change the View Properties to include Axis, Center Line, and Thread. (all views) Threaded features on the 3D model will now be shown on the drawing with the correct symbols for threads (based on drafting standard).

3. To dimension the thread size, use the Thread Dimension command. Or, add Text With Leader and type in the thread information.

Threads are not shown in the 3D model, they are only shown symbolicly on the drawing.

To get to the Properties page of a View:

right-click on the view name in the tree, and select Properties.
In the View page, choose the options listed above.
OK when done,
and Update the drawing.

repeat this for each drawing view.
