Default Carb Primer Question

So I am very new to this bike and motor combination. I just got my motor mounted and my bike running yesterday and have been taking short trips. Super fun! Anyway, when I first tried to get the bike going, gas was flooding from the carb. I think was due to the fact that I was priming the carb too much. Is that a very likely possibility? I think it is because I have been putting very small amounts of gas in the tank so when I ran out and put more gas in, I primed the carb again and once again, gas started flooding from the carb. So the other question is: Do I ever need to prime the carb?
Thanks in advance for all your help and kind answers.
P.S. I live by the golf course and the park and now I know what you all mean by "that look"
