I was about to change Haru’s water when I noticed something in it, I’m not sure what it is. She’s with me in my bedroom and it’s clean, no shoes, and the windows are always closed. I change her water every day and I’ve never seen this thing anywhere before. I was wondering what it is and if it could be from the hay since I bought a new bag a few days ago. Also, if this thing was in her hay or anywhere else and I didn’t see it and she ate it, would it harm her? Or maybe if there were eggs or something.

Your rabbit probably wouldn't try to ingest it, but even then I don't think it would be harmful.

I would just clean the bowl out and put fresh water in. I would also suggest to check your buns fur over carefully for wet or dirty fur and any signs of fly eggs. That's the biggest danger for rabbits in the warmer seasons.
