    can someone please explain to me why my rating went down after my last 2 wins? Most recently it went down 2 points when I claimed a win on a timeout (in a very clearly won game for me).

    It's because your rating is provisional until you have completed 20 games. You will find the answer to your question if you read the FAQ.
