There's absolutely nothing wrong with not wanting to date right away, and just enjoying time for yourself. In fact, that sounds pretty healthy to me! As for people spreading rumours about you, the best thing to do to make rumours go away is ignore them. Generally, rumors are attempts to get a rise out of you, so reacting to them makes the cycle worse.
My best friend has a Dr. Seuss quote she pulls out at times like these, which is "Be who you are, because those who matter don't mind, and those who mind don't matter." Good luck!
Edited to add: just a heads up that generally, 'lesbian' is the best term to use; abbreviating the word can be insulting.
