Hello Feure.  Welcome to the Community!

With this style of light kit, you should find three somewhat hidden thumbscrews that hold the glass located just above the metal trim.  You will likely need a step-stool or small ladder to be able to reach around the trim.  Loosen them each a little at a time and then the rim of the glass will then be released and you can lower the glass out of the trim.  The light bulb will be exposed and you can now easily replace it.  Use the same wattage bulb that came with the fan.

For fixtures like that you push up on the glass gently and rotate counter-clockwise (when viewed from below). If you have one of those little rubber mats designed to help open jars, they can help you grip the glass better.

Hey Adam.

That's another possibility as well, but I would check for those thumbscrews first.
