As long as all the gauges look normal the chances are it’s just normal heat. the normal operating temperature for most cars is around 218 degrees, so if you lift the hood after a bit of driving it will be hot. But a good thing to do is after the engine has cooled down make sure the cooling system is full. You must be sure the engine has cooled before checking, in fact let it cool down overnight and check it before you start up in the morning. Many people have been badly burned checking the coolant before the engine was cooled down.
