Welcome to the forum. I am not familiar with your model, but the switch/light on the right side looks like the water heater propane switch. Turn on propane, operate switch, light should come on for a few seconds. The light will go out after the heater lites and is working off of the propane.
Make sure the water heater is full of water before lighting.

Okay awesome! So the one on the left must be the electric for the water heater I would imagine.

Is the one on the left a switch or just a light? Can't tell from the photo

My money is on water pump for the left one. If your water heater is electric capable, the switch is likely on the face of the water heater. Do not turn it on unless the tank is full of water.

Well when we bought it we were told that those switches are to switch between gas or electric because their is a switch on the hood vent for the pump.

The one on the left is a switch that looks like it should light up when flicked on but does not

check your water heater and see if there isn't an on/off switch there. If there is put it to the on position (with water in the tank) and then go inside and switch the one on the left inside and see if it comes on. If it does it controls the electrical part of the water heater. I believe the one on the right is for your DSI (propane) for the water heater.
