Need assistance on gas home heater

Sorry if this is a bit mundane, but I am not very savvy when it comes to home improvments and such.
I have a honeywell old home heater. I lit the pilot, and the heater is "on" etc.. but the controls are NOT intuitive... I can't make out if what I did was ok. I don't want any gas/toxins escaping or issues. Are these knobs turned in the right place. The "gas" one does NOT have a location marker, so I have no idea.

The pilot is lit, and the heater is "on", I just don't know if that right knob is positioned correctly.

    Does the burner increase and decrease in size as the knob with numbers is turned up and down? If so then you are all set.
