Default First Batch - Not sure when to bottle, help!

So, as some of you may know, I am brewing a gluten free Sorghum extract and honey brew. I brewed on July 9th, and pitched Safale US-05 dry yeast (one pack). OG was 1.052, and on the 19th it was only down to 1.034, so I pitched another packet of US-05. I hit my FG of 1.014 a week ago and transferred to a 5 gal carboy for clearing. It has cleared a lot and I want to bottle, but there are some medium sized clear bubbles on the surface. I don't see mold but I don't know why there are bubbles. Should I double check the hydro reading and bottle?

Thanks,

Lurp

ps. here are some pictures:

It's probably CO2 coming out of solution. It should be fine providing the SG has held steady at 1.014 and it's where you expected it to be.
