I'm assuming you mean fermenting, not carbonated. To be carbonated it would have to be under pressure. If your seeing bubbles that is an active ferment going, the yeast are multiplying, and consuming the fermentable's in the starter. I should be ready to "pitch" pretty soon. I also assume you will be brewing tomorrow

That's CO2 escaping when you swirl it. Normal.

Yeast make CO2 when they eat up the mini-wort mixture you made, therefore bubbles. This is both normal, and good.
