yj thermostat ?

I went to replace my thermostat on my 89 2.5 and noticed a hole next to and connecting to the thermostat hole, its about the size of a finger round and it just looks weird. There is a heater hose near the hole that sits inside the thermostat housing, the part that gets me is it don't look like a factory thing, its kinda rough not smooth. Is it supposed to be like that? My repair manual shows no pics for it since its such an easy job I guess! The other thing was that I found a piece of metal about the size of the hole just inside of the head...
I had siliconed it closed but then had no heat so I took it off and removed the silicone a little while ago and will check it sunday after I fill it back up. The reason I replaced it was for better heat and plus the motor runs at 150- 160 and not the 195 that the thermostat is, so it nows does but no heat but again that should be all set now...
