I have a Ford Ranger as well, mine is a 2004, and yes I would be concerned if the gauge read next to the hot mark. I assume this just started happening, or you maybe just bought the truck?
Ford uses two coolants, one is called "gold" and is a gold color. This was used in 2004 and up engines and was reported to last longer than the "green" coolant.
Are there any "check engine" lights on? If so, go to a big box autoparts store and ask them to poll the codes. There may be an underlying reason that has nothing to do with the cooling system (see below)
Here's the possible causes:

Flushing the radiator, replacing the radiator cap, adding new coolant, replacing the sensors and a new thermostat solved the problem. Probably didn't need to do all of these things - but since we just purchased the truck, and given the fact that is probably hadn't been done in a while, we chose to do all of these things (which really didn't cost a whole lot), it's running like a charm now.

there is problem that I have seen many times with dodges , and I know because I personally own one , the blend door inside of the A/C case ,broke ,bloking the cool air flowing in to the car and allowing just the hat air going though...I have seen that happen before in many other dodges...not 100% sure , but if you mechanic says that the pressure ais OK so the problem have to be inside the A/C case
