When you turn the heater on does it blow hot air?

Thats normal. I think I would check that guage or the sending unit.
The heater wont blow hot air unless the engine is heating up. The heater gets its heat from blowing air threw the heater core that is like a little radiator that has hot coolent runing threw it.
