Take the thermostat off or test it in some boiling water for a start. Or check the rad pipes get hot to ensure its opening.

seems like the thermostsat is stuck and you have an air lock .
renew the thermostsat or break the middle out of it and run it like that and see what happens .best flush the system with a hose (unless thats banned) the radiator might be blocked or somthing ,
also if a head gasket you might get oil in the water or vise versa .
