Sounds like the cooling system needs to be purged from the air that is trapped. Anytime you open up the cooling system it needs to be purged. Check this out on how too.... www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpXgAJ1gjU

I have a 2008 pontiac torrent..the mechanic said he bled the lines do you think the hatter core needs to be flushed

If the vehicle is not over heating, then you could try a flush, it would hurt for the radiator to be flushed anyway. Most of time that is what it takes. So a cooling system flush would be good to do.

No it is not overheating..could it possibly be a head gasket

Head gasket only if the engine was overheating would be one cause, but since it is not just the radiator and heater core flush is necessary, cooling system flush.
