OVER HEATING ON OCCATION

2001 Ford Focus • 130,000 miles

My daughter has a 2001 Ford Focus. The water guage keeps heating up into the red zone, but if she puts the heater on for about 10 minutes, it drops back down to normal and everything is fine till next time.
What could be the problem causing this issue?

Could be a bad thermostat does the raditor fan come on at the correct temp?Any codes in the computer?
