Thanks Jake 

So i hooked up the the white wire to W1 the read to RH , this is from the fireplace

24 volt to C and the other wire to RC 

The Nest works but sometimes it does not recognize RH which is the Red from the fireplace. 

When i put a tester on the wires from the fireplace there is no power coming from the fireplace

It only works if the i add the 24 volt cable to it. I did research this from youtube . Which it should work.  But am stumped why the red does not show up.
