No Sound in headphones while recording or otherwise

I need help! geez. So…I’ve imported an audio file,instrumental to be exact. And I don’t have any monitors plugged in. Only headphones. Problem is I can’t hear the beat in the head phones,the mic is on,i can hear myself in the headphones but no beat, when I switch to Focusrite Scarlett ASIO Driver it plays for about 10 seconds and I can hear it,then it stops again. Some one please tell me what am I missing or doing wrong. I’M FRIED trying to figure this out. :unamused:
