No matter what you're going to have to re-adjust it later once you've got some organics in the water to skim out. If you want to fiddle with it now in order to get comfortable with it, I'd probably adjust it so the bubbles rise to the bottom of the cup. The bubbles will stay at that level until there are organics to skim, at which time the bubbles will last long enough before popping that they rise into the collection cup.
The instructions for your skimmer should tell you where to set the bubbles initially.
I'm sticking with my initial suggestion that theres really not much sense in running it right now, though. Save the electricity
