Turns on but doesn't last

Having trouble getting my furnace going & it's getting cold fast up here in Canada.

Anyways I am able to light my pilot & it continues to burn as long as I hold down the button. It will continue to burn even after that for approx. 1-2 min. & then cuts out, even if I turn on the thermostat, the hole thing starts heating up & then goes out within the 1 - 2 min.
Is this most likely the thermal coupler? I'm willing to try replacing it myself but I would love to get some encouragement that I am likely fixing the right thing.

Also I have already vacuumed it & blown it out with my air compressor.
