Could be the thermostat as others have mentionned, but if you haven't checked the coolant level, do so immediatedly. I had a similar, somewhat intermittent problem and it turned out to be low coolant due to a slight leak at the head gasket. I neglected to follow up in identifying the problem, with the result that the engine overheated on a trip. I managed, to salvage the car with a replacement head and an engine job, $3000 later....
