I have a Ford Ranger as well, mine is a 2004, and yes I would be concerned if the gauge read next to the hot mark. I assume this just started happening, or you maybe just bought the truck?
Ford uses two coolants, one is called "gold" and is a gold color. This was used in 2004 and up engines and was reported to last longer than the "green" coolant.
Are there any "check engine" lights on? If so, go to a big box autoparts store and ask them to poll the codes. There may be an underlying reason that has nothing to do with the cooling system (see below)
Here's the possible causes:

When you change the plug what color is the tip of the old one? This could be the answer to your problems. It should be a light beige or tan if everything is working properly.Just take one of the old plugs down to your local garage and get the mechanic to have a look at it. He'll be able to tell you why it keeps misfiring. Hope this helps.

1989 Ford Ranger auto Transmission, will not shift. Engine starts but it's like it stays in neutral no mater where the gear selector is placed. Truck rolls when being pushed although the selector is in park

SOURCE: I need the location of
For 1994 Dodge Truck RAM 3500 1 ton 4WD 5.9L Turbo Diesel 6cyl have few Temp Sensor...
- Coolant Temperature Sensor is located: Under hood, driver side, rear engine area, below intake manifold, mounted in cylinder head
- Engine Temperature Sensor is located: This vehicle is not equipped with selected component
- Temperature Switch is located: Under hood, driver side, upper engine area, mounted on rear of cylinder head
However, for gas or diesel vehicles, if your gauge reads HOT , or the temperature light comes on, this means there is a potential mechanical problem.
