How does one know if their oil pump is really working?

I thought mine was totally hooked up on my 2001 Tomos TTLX. I had to replace it, and I got an exact duplicate, and connected everything the way it came apart. In the tube leading from the pump to the intake manifod, there were 2 air bubbles. After a short 5 mile ride, the bubbles did not seem to have moved.

Wouldn't the system, if it was working correctly, have purged the air out by now? Also, is there any way I can check to see that the pump is actually functioning?
