Instance:FindFirstChild() returns the instance with the provided name if it exists, or otherwise returns nil. In your case, your call is redundant because you do not check if it returned nil.

GUIs cloned client-side won't replicate to the server (i.e. cloned from game.StarterGui), so the server was unable to find your GUI.

Player.Character is not loaded when game.Players.PlayerAdded fires, try the Player.CharacterAdded event like so:

game.Players.PlayerAdded:Connect(function(Player)
    Player.CharacterAdded:Connect(function(Character)
        -- code
    end)
end)
