Default Do I have a problem?

Brewed my first batch friday, an Irish red. I pitched the yeast around 615 Friday. Saturday I had strong fermentation leading the having to set up a blow off tube with lots of turbulence in the carboy. Its now 7am Sunday morning and I have no bubbles in the blowoff tube and very little turbulence if any. The carboy has been in a dark place with good temps with very little change. Also the krausen level has dropped.

Give it a 10-14 days then check your gravity with a hydrometer. If you get the same reading a few days later then you should be good to bottle or keg. If it changes check it again in a few days. You want to get the same reading a few days apart that will let you know fermentation is finished and its safe to bottle with proper amounts if priming sugar.

I do have a steady stream of small bubbles rising up from the bottom of the carboy.

You don't have a problem at all. What it sounds like you have is a fantastic start to a successful fermentation. The heavy hitting is done. Now comes the hard part... Let those yeast do what they do and clean up after themselves. Just as GSBB↑ says, wait another 10 days or so before you even touch it again. You'll be glad you did.
