Normal, coolant if flowing back to expansion tank. check level to make sure it's not overfilled. only to cold level mark.


Bubbling sounds can be boiling due to a low ratio of anti-freeze to water. I would also check the coolant level and make sure it is not low and that you don't have air in the system.
