No issue yet at HT said. T-stat doesn't make or allow pressure, the pressure cap does,

System has to be known full. Air or vapor anywhere or anyhow getting in to system will blow out that bottle like a real overheat which your gauge shows as well. Probably is.

This can happen from a head gasket failure frequently the result of your original issue not the cause but doesn't matter now check whole system out and that too,

So if you start the vehicle cold, does the upper radiator hose stay cool even when the temp gauge rises above normal? Need to get a infrared thermometer and check against gauge and verify temp that tstat opens. A pressure tester would be very helpful. When does it overflow?
