You may want to send your oil off to get tested and find out exactly what those bubbles are.

I would say it must be an air leak somewhere. Do you have any oil leaks? quattro isnt far off with the "broken Straw"

you may even want to pull your vavle covers off and see if there is any evidence of bubbles or popped bubbles (little circles everywhere) If there are, then the issue is inside the case

Then you will want to remove your oil filter and check it. If your oil filter is clean then that would rule out the large oil line coming from the sump pump, and oil cooler.

If you rule out the oil filter, then move on to the turbo scavenge pump. this oil is not filtered, and goes directly into the oil tank. If you find bubbles, then the issue is most likely somewhere before the scavenge pump (this is where sucking occurs)
