Exclamation bubbles coming out of his gills when he gets air?

One of my fish seems to be having problems swimming. At first I thought swim bladder problems, but just now when I was watching him breathing at the surface, I noticed that some bubbles were coming out of his gills!

Is this normal? I don't think I've noticed it before in any of my fish.

It caught me off guard cause it looked like he was gulping the air and it was going straight out his gills again.

I think they might be expelling the carbon dioxide maybe?

He's doing much better now. He was floating sideways earlier today, but I fed him some thawed pea and now he's swimming around without floating!
