it dont seem to be to bad but i would put a new thermostat in just to be safe since it is new to you this way you can make sure its not sticking put in a 180 and it should run a lot cooler

If you overheat this puppy it will wind up costing you big bucks. Do yourself a favor, pull the radiator have it boiled out or repaired, change the stat, replace all hoses, replace anti freeze and make sure fans come on. This way you'll know where you're at.
