SOURCE: engine overheating
No water pump issues I am aware off, are you sure you bled the air out of the cooling system? If not fill the overflow bottle all the way full, then use a floor jack and raise the front of the car as high as you can ( this allows air to go to top of radiator tank), then run the engine at high idle speed until the cooling fan ( I assume the fan works OK?) comes on, but avoid letting the engine get into the overheat area of the guage, if it does turn it off, run water over the radiator until it cools, check the tank and radiator, top off if you need to and repeat above procedure, if this doesn't work you have some other problem like no or little flow in radiator.

The temp guage would not have anything to do with the engine light i wouldnt think, take it to a mechanic who has the right diagnostic equipment to extract the codes to tell you what that problem is. As far as the temp guage goes it might be that its riding on the new thermostat as long as its not overheating it should be fine.
I hope this helps.

Thermostat might be stuck in the open position or heater core clogged. Replace the thermostat and see where you stand. This would also be a good time to replace any coolant hose that needs replacing and to flush the cooling system and change the coolant. Could also need to change your radiator ca.

Replace the thermostat, if that does not cure the issue you have a slight head gasket leak. I am a retired Ford dealer tech and this is what I have found causes this issue.
