Is the thermostat opening?

It sounds like you need to purge the air out of the cooling system. Do it by leaving the radiator cap off while warming up to operating temperature, the coolant may overflow the radiator but that is the air working out of the system. When the thermostat opens the coolant level will drop in the radiator, at this point keep filling it as necessary until full. Like joemom says, make sure the thermostat is working properly.
