It is very difficult to "check" your thermostat, so i would just suggest from the symptoms you are telling us that is exactly what it is. A stuck thermostat. Easy and cheap repair. Just do it would be my advice.

It is not difficult to check a thermostat. But a thermostat is cheap and since even just checking it requires you to remove it from the car, you might as well just replace it while you're at it. BTW - to check the thermostat, remove it from the vehicle's engine and drop it in boiling water. You'll be able to see whether it opens or not. To be even more precise, drop it in the water before it's boiling and use a thermometer to see at what temp it opens. Most thermos should open at around 180 degrees F.
