Check the coolant level. If it's low, not enough coolant can circulate to the heater core. You can also check the heater hoses when the engine is running and up to temperature, squeeze them and see if they are hot and feel pressurized. If not coolant is not flowing to the core, which indicates either low coolant levels, a bad thermostat not opening, or a failing water pump. Based on your description though, my bet is on a bad water pump.
