Quick question regarding my water surface

Just changed 60% of the water in my 5 gallon tank, after I noticed a weird smell. I do have a filter that pushes the water so in that general area the surface of the water looks fine. However in other spots such as the corners the surface of the water looks like a thin sheet of ice. Thats the best way I can explain it. Is bacteria causing this? Do I just need to do more water changes?

Could you take a photo of it? Some tanks will get a film over the surface, but it's harmless and I want to see if what your explaining is the same thing. When you did a water change where you able to clean out the gravel?

I'll post a picture in a few minutes here. Yeah I went through the gravel and anything that was decaying should be gone now.

Here is a picture of the water. It just looks like there is a very thin layer of something at the top where the filter doesn't push the water through. Also, where are all these giant bubbles coming from? My betta has been making small bubble nests but nothing that big.

Also to note, my betta fish has been acting completely fine. He swims around, flares up, eats and poops normally, I usually do 25% water changes once a week. The thin layer showed up a few days after I did his water change.
