Red Spots Under My Teeth?

Hello!
I’ll start off by saying I have Braces, and I brush my teeth erratically; I usually keep a better schedule during the school year, as has been the case, and further, I don’t floss. I used to have a habit of using a WaterPik, but I’ve fallen out of that habit. Over winter break (a solid two weeks), though, I hardly brushed, if at all. Yesterday, the 2nd, I noticed red spots underneath my incisors and canines on my lower jaw, and some of them do bleed when enough Force is used. I don’t want to self-diagnose myself, but this hasn’t happened before, and looking around online leads me to think it might be Gingivitus???
Here’s a picture, if necessary:

You absolutely must start brushing again and you should perhaps go to the dentist to show them your gums. You should always be brushing twice a day. It's so easy to brush, why did you neglect it? What is your diet like? May be worth taking vitamin C supplements for a couple of days. But go see the dental hygienist for a professional clean and some advice.
