Default Radiator making noises

My radiator is making water dripping noises. When I turn the pump to 100% after startup, there are always air bubbles but I dont see any leaks anywhere. Could it be the radiator is broken? Should I drain it and do an air pressure test

It probably just has air in it. It take a while to get all the air out.

The radiator is OK. There is an air pocket trapped in the radiator.
I would suggest turning the pump to 100% for a longer time. If it does not help, you can try to tilt the case a bit to help the air out of the radiator.
