Question on Baseboard Heater

I am installing a baseboard heater at my cabin this weekend. I intend on running it on a seperate circuit as I may expand this circuit later to a second baseboard heater in the adjacent room. My question is, I have a thermostat with the unit. The thermostat has two wires, I am doing this from memory, but I am thinking the wires are black and red. They are pretty thick maybe at least #12 wire. I think this thermosat connects on the heater itself, I just want to make sure, black to black and red to white on the three wires coming from the panel. I am thinking I have to mark the white with black paint to show its hot? Since the baseboard don't have a ground what do I do with the grounding wire from the panel? Wirenut it off? Thanks in advance for any help.

Your white power wire needs to be marked with black or blue to indicate it is hot. Use permanent marker.

The ground wire will connect to screw at the back of the heater. The screw is most likely green.
