Your low on coolant because it leaked out of the heater core. Do not be getting it hot, or you will have a lot more serious problems.

Yes, assuming this is the only issue, once the heater core is replaced and the system filled back up, the engine temp should be normal.

I was hoping it was just the heater core.i think it should be good i pulled over right away after temperature was up and let it cool down.

Be careful if it heats up again you could have a head gasket issue
