Either your coolant temp sensor is bad, or the wiring going to the temp sensor is faulty. Also, check your thermostat and your fluid levels. My bet would be on the coolant temp sensor though.

Have the Radiator cooling fans checked. There are Relays and the Temperature sensors activate the Relays which control the fans. The antifreeze level should be visible in the overflow tank.

The temperature sensors work off of the engine temperature. Usually 1 sensor controls the water temperature gauge or light and the other temperature sensor operates the Relays and signals the ECM about operating temperatures.

I have a lot of prolem with my kia carnival model 2002, overheating than mixing oil with water several times

Overheating then oil mixing with water most of the time means a problem with the headgasket. Not a good idea to drive it until you have it repaired, you can ruin the engine.

2002 Kia Rio Temperature gauge rising a bit

It could be engine overheating, once you are turning the defroster on you are acutally turning on the compressor which is usually used for AC. If the engine has a drain it will over heat a bit which sounds like what you are experiencing. Check to make sure your thermostat is not sticking and staying closed causing the temperature change. Did they change the thermostat when they did the water pump? If they didn't I would suggest you do that sooner than later since you have 123K miles on the car. Most likely this will fix your problem.
