Default stock DX with a small problem

hello. i have a 95 civic dx. it has 140k on it and no mods have been done to vehicle. its basicly a daily driven car.on my way to work i was at a red light and noticed my temp gauge is pinned on HOT. i immediately shut the car off and let it sit. drove it to a gas station poped the hood and noticed the radiators coils are all wrapped in the fan. yea the radiator was F'd! i shut the hood and let it sit for a few hours.
( im trying to make this short lol) i got a ride to the part store and bought a new radiator and thermostat. i put in the radiator my self and didnt have the right tools so i didnt put in the thermo.( i live downtown cleveland tools n space are limited) well the radiator is still leaking a tad bit and it still likes to go from warm to hot all the time. im trying not to jump to conclusions and say i blew a head gasket. do you think if i get the thermostat in, it will fix the problem?
any input is appreciated. car has never gave me a prob in putting 60k miles on it. i love the car and wanna keep it running well. please help thank you!!!
