That's exactly what I was thinking. I think that scene was more symbolic of the idea that, even though she 'hates' Misato and Shinji and expresses such in 22' she ends up in a bathtub again in 24, possibly because in some way, she wants them [Did that make sense?] I don't think she tried to kill herself, if anything I reckon she'd sit there and rot away and that's it.
The bandages on her wrist didn't prove anything to me either, needles where inserted where those bandages were, and from what I imagine they usually do wrap bandages around inserted needles to prevent infection. I could ask my friend who was hospitalised for a few months about this to be sure though.
It might be possible to even suggest that the red in the tub might be someone else's blood, after all, with that explosion I wouldn't be surprised there were some causualites [This is a long shot but I feel it's worth mentioning.]
I also feel there's some connection between that bathtub scene, and the bathtub scenes we see with Misato and Shinji earlier on, but I can't figure out what just yet and that's not really related to this discussion.
