An air bubble in the system from the thermostat replacement would be my guess as the source of the problem. Check the radiator and see if the fluid is at the correct level. Leave the radiator cap off, turn the heat on, and start the engine. Keeping yourself and your clothing away from any moving engine parts, squeeze the upper radiator hose a few times every 30 seconds until the thermostat opens. Have some coolant on hand in case the coolant level drops. You will know when the thermostat opens, a small amount of coolant will surge up and overflow. When this happens, simply grab the radiator cap and install it.
