Sounds like air trapped in the heater core. I think driving it and getting the water to slosh around helps clear it. But if you can't drive it, then that is a problem. Maybe try rocking the truck while idling.

By the way, usually it isn't a big deal to drive on a hub that is going bad unless it is totally shot. I have driven hundreds, maybe over a thousand miles on a bearing that I knew was going out. Once it is shot, it is shot, so driving it after it starts making noise usually is no big deal up to a point.
