if you underweight it might be just a bit of healthy weight gain with the increased calories i wouldent worry about it to much,while bulking you will have to accept a bit of fat gain,maybe somebody else can chime in.

When you increase your calories substantially you are also generally increasing your carb intake, sodium intake, as well as increasing your digestive system demands.

That's normal. It's mostly water, not fat. The first 2 weeks of any calorie change don't count. It's the 2 weeks after that are more telling.

if you are training hard and heavy it wont be fat like a sumo alot of it will be muscle with a bit of fat covering the body you will have to gain some weight while bulking.

Steve is spot on. For you to have put on 6 actual pounds of fat or muscle you would have to eat 21,000 calories over maintenance. That is 3500 extra calories a day. It can be done, but I have seen very few folks your weight that could pack away that much food consistently, each day. That said, we need a whole lot more information to help you accurately.

Height?
Weight?
A few days of food logs.
Exercise regimen.

All of this info would be helpful.
