    Leave it. If she is pregnant then she will have to have a nest to give birth.

    Possibly/probably, but after you have had them neutered/spayed and once the babies have been weaned and taken away from mum, you can re-introduce them - you will probably need professional help to do this as you can't just put them back together as they might fight. They have to be reintroduced very carefully and slowly.

    Probably babies, I think it can be hard to tell though even for a vet, I'd leave her nest alone, remove male from the area and just keep an eye on her and the nest let us know how it all goes

    I don't think much of your Vet then. You said your rabbit is 6 months old so she is definitely old enough to be pregnant. I would definitely err on the side of her having babies.
