If it was overheated at any time then you could have a blown head gasket or cracked head. The easiest way to check for this is to fill the radiator clear full, leave the radiator cap off and start the engine then watch to see if the water in the neck of the radiator looks like it is boiling. The neck is where the radiator cap screws on. If it has no bubbling or very very little then everything is fine and you need to look somewhere else. REMEMBER to fasten the radiator cap after testing or it will overheat.

What causes a gurgling sound from car heater when cold?

The coolant level may be just a little low and you're getting air bubbles through the coolant that circulates into the heater core. It doesn't cause any problem and can make that noise even if there IS enough coolant. Sometimes, even when the coolant level is up, an air bubble can get caught in an engine and when it makes noise it can cause concern, but it won't damage anything.
