Unless you can diagnose this yourself and repair it your best bet is to take it to a shop. 10 times out of 10 when only half the radiator heats up its always a clogged radiator. The real question is if its clogged what part fell aprt and clogged it. Being such a new vehicle this should not happen unless you ended up with a defective part when the vehicle was assembled.
Now if someone had done a flush on the system then its possible you have an air pocket and the system needs to be bleed better.

This is where you fluid goes. If I were you, I would stay away from those sealants. But yes you can put the sealant in the reserve, but it;s best if you drain half the water out, pour in coolant and then re-fill. This gives it a better chance to flow throughout the system. Sometimes these sealants can cause more harm than good in the long run.
