Question about Elite 25W heater

I am testing it out on my new 5 gallon tank today. I just want to make sure I get the right temperature before I put my fish in it. I just plugged it in 10 minutes ago, and the water was at 68 degrees. I've noticed the pilot light keeps turning on and off in short intervals. It'll stay on for about half a minute, then go off for about 15 seconds. Is it supposed to do that?

I think that's right. They're meant to increase the water temp a little bit at a time so as not to shock any tank inhabitants.

I have another question about it now. I saw this white paper-like mesh stuff inside the glass wrapped around the bottom of the coil. Is that supposed to be there?
