I have a search result webpart on one of my pages, which show the results from main and sub sites.

I am using Sharepoint 2016.

Based on my search, it should not see any results but I am getting empty result with Pagination. First Page

When I click pagination there is no results till the last page. Last Page

Please advice me to solve this issue.

It's entirely possible that you have the Search Paging Web Part on the page but have accidentally removed or "closed" the Search Results Web Part.

First, check the page in webpart maintenance mode by appending "?contents=1" to the page URL. If the listing on this page shows a closed results webpart, then you can re-open it from this same view.
If it is not visible here, you will need to navigate back to regular view of your search page, then click Edit Page. With the search results page open in Edit mode, click "Add a Web Part". In the Categories group under the ribbon, click Search.In the  Parts group under the ribbon, click Search Results, then click Add.
