Vaginal bleeding: Please see a pediatrician or bring her to the ed (emergency department) for further evaluation. 14-month-olds just don't "cut themselves". I hate to bring it up but there's something fishy going on.

Viral illness?: If she is comfortable & in no distress, support her by allowing her private areas to heal by soaking her in a tepid bath with some baking soda to enhance healing of her "cut." watch to see how other symptoms affect her over time. I would not give medication for her temperature unless she was fussy, irritable, uncomforatble. This may be a viral illness with rash, fever & evolving other sx's.
