SEEMS TO BE OVERHEATING

1987 Mazda b2200

Engine Cooling problem
1987 Mazda b2200 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual 55,000 miles

It appears that my truck is overheating by my temp gauge. I replaced the thermostat and it does not always give me problems. I am thinking it might be the water pump? I dont seem to be leaking, but I do have to replace the antifreeze sometimes.
I have not seen any signs of the head gasket being the issue. No water in the oil or radiator, engine still runs great. If it is the water pump how difficult to replace? What else could it be?
