Yes its probably your thermostat.

DO NOT USE A HIGHER TEMPERATURE THERMOSTAT!!!!

It does not fix your problem.

If its stuck open you will be at regular temperature at a stop light, for example, and you take off... your temp will close to the cold mark.

If its stuck closed your car will overheat.

Try the cardboard trick if your outside temps are below 10 degrees. I recommend wax coated cardboard.

Changing the temperature that your engine operates is not a good idea... It really messes with things.
