The bubbles will take a few days to go away. They don't cause any harm. You can wipe them away with a sponge if you want.

Did you cycle the tank? Two goldies will be too large for a 10 gal tank if they reach adult size. If you didn't cycle the tank by seeding the filter with colonized biomedia, you can have quite high ammonia and nitrite levels rather quickly in a 10 gal tank with two goldies in it.

Even if they don't reach adult size soon, they may still create too much waste/ammonia, making cycling a very difficult process, as well as making the fish less healthy.

I agree you will need to do extra water changes throughout the cycle to make sure the fish don't suffer ammonia poisioning.
