Says heat, but no heat


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have had this happen a couple times before and am trying to figure it out. The most recent time, someone came out about a month ago and replaced a part for me. On my thermostat, sometimes it says that the heat is on when it is not. I can tell when this is going to happen because when the heat kicks on, it almost takes a few tries to start. You hear the fan and can hear it trying to start, but sometimes it starts right up and other times it shuts off for a second. If it shuts off, then it comes on full force a few minutes later.
It will only be on for a few minutes and then shut off. According to the thermostat though, it says it is on, although it is not. Because of this, it gets cold sometimes! This only happens sometimes though. Please forgive me because I know nothing! I'm just trying to figure out if this is something easy maybe a loose wire on the thermostat or if I need to call someone out?

One of the panels may have a small sight glass, that you can look through and see an error code flashing.

My furnace is actually in a small room above my guest bathroom. I live in a loft, and that was there they put it so it is not an easy thing to get to! It seems like the easiest may be to have a professional come in and take a look?
