Do you mean lining?: You probably mean the lining of the uterus, not the wall. If the lining of the uterus is too thick then the chance of abnormal or pre-cancerous or even cancerous cells increases. This is something that should be evaluated by your obgyn.

It can happen: Even w/o sexual activity, women can develop lesions on the vulva. Some are allergy or auto-immune in nature. Many are infectious in nature. The most common would be either an infected hair follicle (esp if you shave) or infected sebacceous cyst (basically a pimple). However, remember that some std's can be transmitted even w/o vaginal penetration. Ex: herpes only takes skin to skin contact.

Could be right away: It somewhat depends on whether you had a paragard or a mirena (levonorgestrel). But even with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) you could likely get pregnant your very next cycle.
