Icon5 Help!!!

I have a '97 Ranger 2.3 4cyl.

This morning it was running cold (but it was 14 degrees outside) and I had heat though not much.
It was about a quart low on coolant. I topped off the coolant but now have no heat. With a 19 degree windchill I'm freakin cold!

Help me please!!! Any suggestions? I have heard thermostat but wonder if it is something else. Ideas, costs??? HELP!!!

In northern states this happens alot on small motors. They can't create enough heat when the outside temp is low. If your lucky its just a thermostat. This is why some people put cardboard over part of there radiator.
