You must specify the inlet pressure and outlet pressure. Specifying only the pressure difference is not enough to establish all the necessary boundary conditions.

Then your difference in pressure is 103 kPa.

By default, when you specify pressure, it is the gage pressure that is specified. The pressure reference is the operating pressure. By default the operating pressure is 101.325 kPa.

When you specify the pressure to be 103 kPa and 0 kPa you are specifying that the absolute pressure is 103 kPa +101.325 kPa and 0 kPa + 101.325 kPa. For many incompressible flows the operating pressure has no influence.

Hope that helps.
