Default Temp Guage Question

I installed a new water pump back in the beginning of October (leaking from weep hole). And I waited a week to do the thermostat (185*F). Before I changed the thermostat the trucks gauge spiked because the thermostat was stuck closed, but ever since Ive replaced it, the gauge now fluctuates between normal operating temperature and above cold. Sometimes with rpm change, downshifts etc? Is that normal or do I need a new sensor?
