Probably snail eggs. No big deal. In my opinion, snails are good. They eat algae. If there is no algae, the snails will not thrive. If there is a lot of algae, they will populate to eat your algae! If you want, get your own fancy snails that are bigger and faster. They will out-complete the smaller pond snails for the most part. Don't worry!
The small bubbles are probably just air that was trapped in your soil and is escaping as it hydrates. It might also be off-gassing as your new soil begins to break down and settle in. Again, don't worry! You're just getting started. No problems.
