Doubt kidney pain: I highly doubt it's kidney pain. How do you know its your kidneys ? Keep yourself well hydrated. If pain persists in the the mid back (if that's where the pain is now) you will need further evaluation including a kidney sonogram.

Dehydration: Anything containing alcohol will dehydrate you. It is a diuretic. You should quit drinking.

No: That should have no effect of your periods. It may affect other things. So would definitely get an evaluation, especially if this is a change for you.
