In brief: Many possibilities

But the most likely are simply breakthrough bleeding or irritation/trauma from your vinegar treatment.
I would not normally expect a 3 hour delay with your pill would matter, but it's possible. The vinegar is not a good idea. Using douches is not a good idea. They tend to disrupt your natural defenses and create more problems than they solve. There are specific BV treatments. Get checked.

In brief: Vaginal bleeding

This can occur with hormonal imbalance, trauma, stds, and other causes.
If it continues you might want to see a gynecologist and be examined.
