How can I make an image visible in the featured news box?

You can do it by selecting a featured image at the post editor or you can use the plugin's custom media field. If you don't see that custom field, click on the 'Screen Options' at the top right corner of the post editor, and there tick the 'GO Featured News Media' checkbox.
