Narrated 'Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him), reported: Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The deeds are considered by the intentions, and a person will get the reward according to his intention. So whoever emigrated for Allah and His Messenger, his emigration will be for Allah and His Messenger; and whoever emigrated for worldly benefits or for a woman to marry, his emigration would be for what he emigrated for". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

The point which becomes evident from this Hadith is that Ikhlas (sincerity) is a must for every action. In other words, in every righteous deed, one should seek only the Pleasure of Allah; otherwise, it will not be accepted by Allah.

Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 290 Narrated Abu Huraira (Radi-Allahu 'anhu): Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "The worst of all mankind is the double-faced one, who comes to some people with one countenance and to others, with another countenance."

Bukhari Vol. 9 : No. 298 Narrated 'Aisha (Radi-Allahu 'anha): Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, "The most hated person in the sight of Allah, is the most quarrelsome person."

Surah Al-Baqarah [2:284] "To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth.Whether you show what is within yourselves or conceal it, Allah will bring you to account for it.Then He will forgive whom He wills and punish whom He wills, and Allah is over all things competent."

Sister, there is nothing contradictory in the two statements. 1) Allah said, Whatever one does(action), his/her reward with Allah will be determined by his/her intention. Here, first there was intention, then an action followed it. Therefore, the reward of this action will depend on the intention. 2) Scholars said Allah will not hold you accountable for what is inside your heart. Here, what they mean is, Allah will not punish you for the intention that has not been followed by an action. First, there was intention in the heart, but an action has not followed this intention. Therefore, Allah will not hold you accountable for the intention. I hope I have made some sense. Allah knows best.

Bilquees. You are mixing up two different things. One is an intention behind doing a thing - of which Allah is aware whether the good deed was done with the intention of pleasing Allah or it was done with the intend to please a person, hence the judgement is recorded accordingly. Second is about the thoughts which keep coming to our mind/heart - some are good and others are bad; good thoughts are rewarded but the bad thoughts are not accounted for unless these are uttered from the mouth, once so done these are subject to judgement.
