Unless you had a pinhole in a return pipe or hose, the pump would have to be pulling enough to actually create a mini whirlpool, pulling air in along with the water. If that's the case, it should be fairly visible.

Do you have a skimmer maybe that is putting out some micro bubbles that your return pump is just passing through?
