Once it faults you need to remove power to get it to reset. Sometimes moving the thermostat to the lowest temp will do it, but depending on the ambient temp it may not open the contacts.
If you heard the igniter clicking then the blower was running and it passed the sail switch limit. You may need to let it try to light several times before it actually fires off.
Also you mentioned that you've not used it before, so don't let the odors you smell when it does light scare you. And the smoke detector will likely go off. After it runs a while things will clear out.
