If you are uncertain about parts on gas water heater, I suggest calling service technician.
There are several advantages. The technician can service the appliance and ensure there is no dangerous gas leaks or dangerous CO vent leaks.
And if your water heater is rusted and leaking, then service technician can prevent a possible flood.
Some gas is heavier than air and settles to floor, so always check for gas smell near floor level.
The combustion product from a water heater contains odorless CO which is poisonous, and must be vented outdoors so it will kill other things besides you.
The service technician can also see maintenance issues since gas water heaters require yearly maintenance, and some require more frequent attention.
Finally the service technician can give you a few tricks and tips for taking care of your water heater.
If you add a comment with the brand, type and model number of water heater, I can possibly locate a manual for that product which can help both you and me understand your water heater better.
