Can I develop a tolerance to clindamycin that will make it less effective to treat future vaginal infections?

It might: Any bacteria can become resistant to an antibiotic if it is used repeatedly. If you are pregnant and the Clindamycin is being used to treat a vaginal infection, either Metronidazole or oral Clindamycin is likely to work better.

Is there a connection between bubble baths and urinary tract infections (utis)?

Yes: Bubble baths/scented shampoos/ dirty bath water all have been linked to uti's in females from toddlers to adults. These agents can trigger irritation directly or leave a soapy film on female genitals. If not well rinsed, it may remain & trigger itching/redness/drainage. Bacteria may accompany the irritation & make the short trip to the bladder. I rarely see it in males, different parts.
