Default Gurgling noise under the hood

I hear a gurgling noise under the hood occassionally when the engine is first shut off. Until today, the car was not running hot...just a little gurgling. Today however, the car started running hot. It doesn't seem to be loosing any anti-freeze.

I recall seeing a similar post where it was suggested checking/replacing the radiator cap, so under the hood I went. The radiator cap is marked 18 lbs., and I was wondering if this is the correct cap, it actually looks new, however this is the same dealer who screwed up my sway bar links (which I posted prevoiusly...and they did replace)

Any helpful suggestions?

I believe the original cap is 16lbs. Even if you replace it, have a pressure test done and make sure all the air is out of the coolant system.
