I would expect a small rise in coolant temperature but if as you say the gauge is maxing out you have quite a serious problem that needs to be fixed.
There is a number of components that could be the culprit, so its not really possible to do a remote diagnosis, please take you car to someone who car repair it. And don't drive around with the coolant temp off the gauge, you'll likely blow a head gasket or worse.
