Head gaskets or not?

The temp gauge stays right at halfway and doesn't fluctuate.I don't get adequate heat from the heater.It blows coolant out of the reservoir.
That sounds like classic head gasket failure to me. The failed head gasket is allowing combustion pressure into the coolant jacket. This then causes the coolant to not circulate properly giving you the lack of heat, and the excess pressure gets vented through the radiator cap and resivoir.
