Knob rotated to off...means pilot light is off, and water heater is off.
Read instructions shown with each gas control valve shown on link above.
Don't forget that gas supply to water heater has to be ON. Gas shut off valve must be parallel with gas line.

Tankless gas water heater.
Each brand and model might have different instructions.

You have gas water heater.
Probably a tank-type gas water heater.

The plumber can fix water heater.
If you want to fix water heater yourself, then more information is needed to narrow down scope of answer.
1) Add a comment for possible help.
Instructions for lighting the water heater appear on front of water heater. Do those instructions include lighting the pilot light?
Will the pilot light stay lit?
On side of tank is a label. Label shows Brand, type (LP or NG), and model number.
This information can help narrow the type of gas control valve, and point direction for troubleshoot.
Add a comment with this information for possible help.

2) Do-it-yourself: Open following link for do-it-yourself resources to help solve gas water heater problems:
Generally the instructions show how to clean water heater parts, check venting, and show different types of gas controls, plus links for pilot light problems and cleaning air intake.

The problem requires looking at manual and service handbook, except handbook doesn't show most recent water heater.
My first check point would be gas supply, and then vent draft, and then air supply.
Take off front cover and try lighting again to make sure air supply is not problem.
Review lighting instructions.
If there is no gas, and gas is turned ON, then gas control valve is suspect.

Just purchast and installed everything hooked up push the sparker looking through window I see nothing


You posted under Reliance gas water heater
You installed a new gas water heater and are trying to light water heater using the piezo igniter.

Not clear is what steps you have taken so far, and which gas control valve is on the new water heater, and what lighting instructions say on side of water heater.
Also unknown if you bled air out of gas line, or if gas shut-off handle is rotated so handle is parallel with gas line.
Read instructions written on side of tank, open link below to double-check installation, and then add a comment with steps you have taken so far, and describe the type of gas control valve on water heater.
