If you are not loosing fluid from radiator,then check the radiator, fan,s and make sure there working right,could be bad fan relay,or check thermostat and water pump.

A bad tempreture sending unit,can cause this,wrong reading on guage,but i would check the temp with a meter,to make sure car is not actually running warm,if it is not running warm with the meter and is with car guage,it will be the sending unit,but if it is actually warm,then check the water pump.
