A connection between the intestine and the bladder, most common wit diverticulitis can cause a fistula can produce bubbles in urine. In rare cases in Diabetics, fermentation in the bladder can cause it or emphysematous bladder or kidney infection. I would suggest you see a Urologist for proper diagnosis.

UTI can cause foamy urine. Iif you think you're passing actual bubbles, or if you feel air passing when you urinate (like a urinary fart), definitely discuss this possibility with your doctor.
