Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand it would appear that the radiator fan is not working. In some versions, either the A/C or the heater must be turned on for the radiator fan to work. In some other incidents, the fan utilizes a clutch. Common design makes use of the inverse property of silica oil to serve as the clutch. Still others have a relay that actually does the switching on of the fan. Of course it would be to your advantage to likewise check the temperature sensor on the radiator.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Yes it looks like it. Provided you installed the thermostat in the correct direction, Here's the test, remove the radiator cap, start the car and wait for the engine to warm up, When you can see the temp begin to rise on the gauge the thermostat will open. While reving the engine look for turbulance in the coolant/antifreeze in the radiator opening.
If none is observed then replace the water pump.
