I spin the hydrometer in the jar, and that gets rid of the bubbles. If there is a lot of CO2 in it you need to take the reading quickly as the bubbles will attache to the hydrometer quickly.
1.016 to 1.002. There is a lot of CO2 in that. For cider, it should be still before you even think about doing anything with it. I don't know what you hev in it, but generally cider should finish somewhere south of 1.000, so give it some more time.
