It could be either, or both. Most decent garages should be able to check the coolant level and add some, or flush the system and replace all of it. They should also be able to check to see if you have a thermostat in place.

You should put in a new thermostat in any case. If the block heats up but the heater doesn't you might have a plugged heater core (which is a little radiator) or a bad heater core valve. Heater cores are often many hours to replace, so if you need one consider getting the Chilton Manual for the car and doing it yourself.

You have a thernostat that is stuck open, Replace.

Could be either or both. Make sure the radiator is filled to the top with 50% pure Dexcool Antifreeze and 50% distilled water. Fill the plastic coolant recovery reservoir at least 3/4 filled with the same mixture. A trusted private mechanic will tell you if the heater control valve is faulty pr the thermostat which is tricky to changes in your car as it is down underneath buy the water-pump.
