Sticking thermostat? Non-OEM new 2k miles ago

So for the last 1000 miles or so my car has been unable to get to operating temp most of the time and tends to fluctuate a lot, but never overheats.

I thought the fan clutch might have been the culprit as it showed signs of being bad but removed it and didn't have any noticeable change.

The thermostat that got tossed in when the timing belt was replaced was whatever part Blauparts threw in with their kit. I'm not 100% sure the bleeder hole was oriented propely.

Anyone else have low engine temp issues?
