Bubbly oil?

Did a cold oil change for the first time today (all old oil in the pan) and got some bubbles out of it. Dont remember seeing this in the 10 years ive been doing oil changes on my vehicles lol. Coolant or am over reacting? Did just have my rad and heater core replaced and a pressure test was done showing no leaks.

I've seen it before. There is a bit of turbulence created since the oil's draining from a higher level on a Jeep to hit your drain pan. It takes some air down with it. If the oil's cold, it just takes longer for the air to make its way up and dissipate. I wouldn't sweat it.

Water in oil looks milky not like bubbles. Tried to search google for a picture of a Navy oil sample to show you a great example.
