If your turtle has a very small chip it will be fine. As they grow they shed so it will grow out by its self.

As for the bubbles in the tank make sure that your filter is clean. Is it a new setup? What type of filter are you using. Some filter medium should be rinsed well with fresh water before placing in your tank. Could you describe your setup for us?
