Are bubbles in urine a sign of a high red blood cell count?

In brief: No.

Bubbles may be normal, unless the urine is "bubbling" as it comes out of the urethra.
Pneumaturia may be a sign of a fistula or infection. If the bubbles develop in the bowl when the urine hits the water, this may be normal.

In brief: No

High number of red cells in urine make urine looks red to smoky (cola-colored) depending upon the source of red cell leakage.
Bubbles in urine could be a normal finding but could also be a sign of proteinuria which can be easily tested at any doctor's office.
