My Temperature gauge reads normal but I have no heat, what can I do to fix this? on 2004 Volkswagen Passat

I've only checked the fluid level. I've been told to replace a few things but I don't want to play Russian roulette with parts and spend a crap ton of money. Just recently had a baby and money is tight. Please help!!!
