Where in the code do I add an error message if nothing is returned?

     function execute() {
     var queryTask = new QueryTask("http://sepa-app-gis01/arcgis/rest/services/live/SEARCH/MapServer/2");
     var query = new Query();
     query.returnGeometry = true;
     query.outFields = [
     query.text = dom.byId("Postcode").value.toUpperCase();
     queryTask.execute(query, showResults);

Should I add Error to the queryTask.execute first??

queryTask.execute(query, showResults, Error)

The Error function will returns a result if something is wrong with the query, like an improperly formatted where statement or a incorrect URL. A result of no records found isn't an error. In your showResults function, you can test to see if any results were returned, like this:

function showResults(results){
    if (results.features.length === 0) {
        console.log("No features found.");
    } else {
        'do something
