Yes. The little micro-bubbles will slowly dissipate over the next 24 hours or so. Make sure you don't fill the reservoir to the very tip-top as to leave a bit of air. If for whatever reason they don't go away, you can do a partial drain of the reservoir only if your drain is on the pump/res. I have done it before where I drain the coolant right back into my fill bottle and put in back in the top. The air bubbles go away in the process.

You can help it along by varying your pump speed up and down, and tilting your system in different directions, but yeah you can also just wait most of it out.

Those micro-bubbles on the sides of the reservoir can be very “sticky”. You don’t get a lot of agitation up there at they can stay quite a while. The quick reservoir only drain into the fill bottle and right back in will usually do it.
