Bathing and cooking for baby with rusty water

Patient

Q: Hello, I've noticed after giving my 15 month old baby a bath the other day that there was a dark film at the bottom of my tub. Tonight when starting her bath the water was running brown our water heater went but I've been cooking with this water and bathing her in this water. Is this harmful to her? I"m very nervous and concerned I don't want this to effect her or her health.
