Over Heating

I have a 1988 GMC K2500 4x4, 5.7 engine, the temp gage goes as high as it can then goes back to normal. It does this all the time. I am thinking the thermostat is the problem but not sure. Any advise would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

I'm not one for throwing parts at a problem, but if you don't know how old the t-stat is, I'd agree with just replacing it
They are cheap

Question:
Is there any pattern the the OH?
Like only at idle or only on the highway? something like that?
