Bubbles: Could be uti, could be protein or it could be soap in the toilet water.

Maybe protein : Bubbly or frothy urine may be caused by protein in the urine - healthy kidneys don't leak protein into the urine. This is easily detected in a routine urinalysis test. There are many reasons kidneys may leak protein - they should be investigated. See a primary care provider for the initial evaluation. Other explanations might be soapy toilet water - try urinating into a very clean bowl to check.
