I want to use my whole genome sequence which is in vcf format to .fa, so that I can find some genes using BLAST.

You cannot convert a VCF to a FASTA as they have vastly different information content. Please explain your process - what exactly do you want to "convert"?

well you try to use FastaAlternateReferenceMaker https://gatk.broadinstitute.org/hc/en-us/articles/360037594571-FastaAlternateReferenceMaker but as your VCF was called from a reference genome do you think you'll find something new for a few variants ?
