Here are a couple things to do.
First and formost double check Thermostat, make sure you put it in the correct way. Spring side goes toward engine.
If thermostat is in correctly then remove it and put back together. If circulates the you possibly got a defective thermostat. To check thermostat you can boil some water and place it in if opens then should be good.
Another possibility is that there is an air bubble in system. They can be very difficult to get out.
One way to attempt to get it out is to jack up the car at the front of the engine as high as you safely can. Run engine with radiator cap at first notch for a while till engine is at operating temp, some coolant will spill out the cap. Turn vehicle off refill radiator. Replace cap fully and run engine. If all is normal your done if not you may need to repeat a few times.
