It would normaly read right in the middle if it gets hot check if you have enough antifreeze in the radiator. (Caution dont open the radiator Cap while your motor is hot)

normally cars will run right in the middle, or maybe a little above or below. depending on the weather conditions, and how much antifreeze is in it.
