When a double strand of DNA bubbles or unwinds, does it mean that those parts of the DNA are single stranded?


Yes, that's exactly what that means. The strands themselves may still be held together at base pairs that have not denatured, but for those hydrogen bonds that have been broken, those would now be considered single stranded bases.
