Yes, for the price of a thermostat and the real possibility of getting a faulty one (that won't open or won't open fully) out of the box, I'd try another one...
If it still overheats, the water pump might be a probable culprit. It might not be sending enough water flow to cool the engine. Even with the thermostat fully open, it still restricts the water flow compared to no thermostat at all... When you take it out, it might flow enough that the engine does not overheat anymore.

White oil means water or coolant is leaking in via Head Gasket Failure or a crack in the head. Along with repair - be sure to have each cylinder compression tested to see if there is a crack that has developed. Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

SOURCE: overheating problem
I would go with slowcalafl. It is either air, or a cracked head bad head gasket. Remove the radiator cap when cool. Start up the car and watch for bubble emerging from the coolant. If it continues to bubble, you have a bad head or head gasket. If not, look for improper timing as another possibility.
