You've got air or a gas (not fuel) in the system. It can only come from a few places, but unfortunately, the most common source in a 'no heat' situation is combustion gasses from blown head gaskets. A bad degas cap or coolant leak somewhere will contribute to it as well.

I have always read that is a sign of HG trouble as well.

Here is hoping you get lucky and it is something like vent doors not opening propperly

I have had the same problem as well. Came from a coolant leak and found coolant was low. So check your coolant
