It's my first active proposal, I got the message from the client that if I'm available to apply their job. And then we had a small interview on Skype. There's no answer from the client yet.
The question is: does this client is my active job or not yet?
And if there's no response later, and I will withdraw the proposal, it could affect my rang on Upwork? (Like the percent of the successful jobs I mean, because the reputation is important).
What should I do in this case?
Nothing. If the client wants to hire you, he knows where you are. Until you are hired, nothing affects your JSS. Your ranking (I assume you mean the order in which freelancers are displayed on a query) you can't affect in any way, since it is an upwork algorithm.
No, that is not your active job yet.
If the client wants to hire you, she/he will send you an offer. If you accept, then it is an active job.
There is no reason to withdraw the proposal - doesn't benefit you anyway.
An interview is just an interview. If the client didn't sent you an offer so you can accept it, then you're not hired.
No need to withdraw your proposal, unless you're not willing to work on that task even if you'll be chosen. And NO, there is no penalty on your stats if you chose to withdraw. You shuold just let it stay there and maybe the client will come back and makes an offer or who knows might not come back ever and hire any of the ones who got interviewed or applied on the particular job.
Rumiya, I'd like to commend you for your honesty regarding your English skills on your Profile in noting them as Conversational. It's often apparent that so many are dishonest regarding this which makes it even more refreshing when people such as yourself are honest about it.

I work and speak the language each day. There's every day conversation.
Maybe my writing skills not so good, but my conversation is well. I'm not American, and it's pretty clear that I'm foreigner. My important skills are sales and marketing, not English, you know.
Thank you for your opinion, but I'm not pretend to be ideal or unhonest.
I think every of us, as me and you, must be better. And I do it for my best without any advice to other. I hope I explained my position.
