Default 08 legacy headlight out

I apologize if there is another thread about this as I am sure there is but I wasn't able to find it.

I have an 08 legacy and my projector light is out. I don't know if there is any other parts other than just the projection bulb to get it fixed? I have an appt with subie next week for my cat converter recall and can ask then but I am trying to be proactive and fix this.

Do I just need to purchase a new headlamp or is there a less expensive option?

Pull the bulb and visually inspect it. Usually if it's burnt out you can see the broken filament, but not always. To be sure you can pull both bulbs and swap them side-to-side, if the opposite side is now out then you have confirmed the bad bulb. If the problem is still on the same side then it's a blown fuse or bad wiring.
Replacement bulbs are readily available at any parts store, they are H7. Buy two if it's a bad bulb since the other one will probably go out soon as well.
