Either there is still air in the cooling system or you are correct that the headgasket has failed.
Running with the cap of for at least 20 minutes should clear the air out of the cooling system. If it continues to bubble after that than the bubbles are likely combustion gases sneaking by the head gasket.
Let run it with the cap on and let it start pushing coolant into the overflow. Shut it down and smell the coolant reservoir. If it smells like exhaust it is the head gasket.
