Can't tell if trolling.

Your car is supposed to get warm. It doesn't sound like an issue at all? Top hose is hot coz it comes from the engine, bottom hose is cold coz it just came from the radiator. You sure it's the thermostat clicking?

Bottom hose should never be cold once the car has warmed up and is at operating temp.

its cold or warm. I guess the keyword I missed was "luke warm". Thermostat is opening up at a higher temp than normal or not at all. Change the thermostat.
