Logstash doesn't do anything

I am trying to configure Logstash for my network. I try to forward logs from a windows server 2012 via winlogbeat to my centos7 servers logstash instance and from there into my elasticsearch. This somehow doesn't work. I can start logstash but it's not doing anything
This is my logstash configuration file

input {
      beats {
        port => 5044

output {
  elasticsearch {
    hosts => [""]
    index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{[@metadata][version]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
    #user => "elastic"
    #password => "changeme"

and this is my winlogbeat.yml

  - name: System


logging.to_files: true
  path: C:/ProgramData/winlogbeat/Logs
logging.level: info

I can make a connection to my centos server from my windos server and the port is open as well. So it's no connection problem.
I am totally new to elk and I don't really know where to start troubleshooting
