Default 2 gauges on boiler system

Hello everyone. I am just a home owner and not a plumber. I am just trying to figure out these gauges on my boiler system. I have one on top and one on the side. The side gauge is reading the correct temp and the correct pressure. The gauge on top is reading 0 psi and the temp is reading higher than the gauge on the side. Should I be looking at the gauge on the side or the gauge on the top? I'm almost convinced the gauge on top is not reading correctly. I appreciate any help anyone can give me. I've attached some pictures.

If you can afford a house large enough to require what I see in that photo you can certainly afford to pay someone to service your heating system. You can ask them all of these questions.




If you can't afford to have the system serviced than you can't afford that house.
