In brief: Calcium citrate
Calcium citrate has no fat or cholesterol, calcium citrate is the most reliably absorbed form of calcium versus calcium carbonate.
That are many brands names of this type of medicine available such as citracal. Calcium carbonate is not as well absorbed if stomach acid levels are low, example. A patient is on medications for heartburn or ulcers.

In brief: Calcium
Not sure what you are concerned about.
Calcium supplements are either calcium carbonate or calcium citrate, and so not contain fat. If they are supplemented with vitamin d, that is fat soluble, but it is not actually adding fat content. There is no concern for ingesting too much fat or gaining weight by taking calcium supplements.
