Go to Settings>Messages>Receive At. If you phone number is listed there then go to Caller ID and select your phone number instead of your email address. If your phone number isn't listed in Receive At then your number is not yet registered with the iMessage server and you will probably see "waiting for activation" listed under iMessage. You may also not have the Caller ID setting until your number is registered.

I wouldn't call this a problem, more of a choice. If you leave it alone as you can see that your messages are being sent and received using the phone. However, if you want to imessage an ipad then leaving the "receive at" set to your apple id email is I believe the only option. To my knowlege this is the reason for the options.
