I would check for leaks first.. Make sure your coolant mix is 50/50.... Replace you radiator cap... Then if it is still overheating it may be the water-pump..

THIS RADIATOR DOESN'T HAVE A CAP, IT HAS A SEPARATE PLACE AWAY FROMM THE RADIATOR WHERE THE WATER GOES IN

FYI.... That is still classified as a radiator cap...

If it doesn't overheat, no problem. It's the thermostat doing his job. FYI - Guessing doesn't help.
