Different colored wire for new fan and light

This is a two sitch controling the fan. I took down the old fan. Then I went to put the new up, I got confused on the colored wireing. There is a red, white, black and ground coming from the switchs. Out of the fan, there is white black and blue wires. I can see the white to white, black to black. Where do the blue and red go to.

Welcome to the forums.

Blue is for the lights and usually gets connected to the red wire.
