Let the engine cool competely then remove the radiator cap and check the coolant level in the radiator, if the coolant level is low enough the temp gauge will misread and could show normal. The noise could indicate a hole or crack where steam/coolant is escaping.

I have a 2001 Taurus and the heater isn't working,

You might want to check the temperature control switch. I have a problem with mine and believe that is the problem. My switch just goes round and round. If you are careful you can find a spot that produces heat.
