What is your print bed made of?
One thing you could try is lay down your glue stick then heat the bed material with a blow dryer. After the first layer the heat bed isnt that critical with PLA. But in my experience the glue stick alone should solve your issues. Cleans up nicely with water. The attached picture is the brand I have found to work the best. I have tried several different ones. Some did not even work at all.
