Bad Thermostat??

Ok so today it was 10 degrees here in Wisconsin and I not could get my truck to go above the 140 degrees on EOT and the coolant read 135. So this whole time I was not getting much heat at all if any. I was going to change out the thermostat tomorrow and see if that helps. Any thoughts?
