Flange on top of the finished flooring is fine.

measure my pedestal?

Do I just need to put the toilet "on" and measure how much of the bolt comes through?

That would be more work than is necessary for now. Just measure the thickness of the pedestal (as if it were over the flange) and then measure how far the bolt rises above the floor. Remember, a nut has to also go on the bolt.

Hard to see but it doesn't look to me like things will fit. You still have to get a washer on the bolts and start the nut. You should have a full-nut threaded when it is all said and done. To say nothing of any imperfections in the pedestal that will cause the base to stand even more proud.

I'd say to be safe take the old bolts out now.
