new breaks, feeling a "pop" sometimes when I pull the F break lever

Got some new breaks put on at the local mechanic. I have been gentle with them for break in.

He bleed out all the old fluid too.

Sometimes (not every time or even half the time) when I first grab the front break lever I feel a little pop or feel a little snap like the lever is pushing back for a split second. The feeling reminds me of those little pop rocks that are wrapped up in paper and explode when you throw them at the ground, or a wall, or squeeze them between your fingers.

Does that make any sense?

Any ideas/suggestions? I plan to call the shop tomorrow.

did you changed out the lever? if yes, do check if the cylinder shaft is seated nicely inside the lever's indentation.
