Ok. Again, how high is the temperature going? Going up just a shade or two is normal. If it's going much higher than that, or overheating, then there is some sort of issue. Perhaps the system just needs to be flushed. Or maybe the thermostat isn't opening all the way. Maybe the radiator core is clogged up with gunk.
I would suggest taking a good look at the radiator core to see if it has a bunch of dirt on it. If it does, it's keeping the fan from being able to pull enough air through to cool the system. An easy way to fix this is to simply spray it with the water hose with a little bit of pressure.
If that's not the problem, then flush the cooling system. Here's a guide: https://www.2carpros.com/articles/coolant-flush-and-refill-all-cars
