I don't think drinking affects iron in the bloodstream but don't quote me on it.

More generally it mostly depends on what and how much you drink. You're meant to get 2L a day of water anyway but acids in juice are bad for your teeth

Do you only drink a lot and eat less? Or are you going to the bathroom a lot, too? Do you have any other symptoms like being tired a lot or shaky?

Drinking a lot can be a sign of some medical problems, if you are really concerned, I'd see your GP.

if you're thirsty a lot it can be a sign of diabetes i believe. however, drinking in itself won't be harmful to you, unless its like a ridiculous amount.

it should be fine, but if you have an iron deficiency, thats most likely not good for your health.

you said there was nothing left out here
well i roamed around the wastelands
and i swear i found something
i found hope
i found the dreams of the believers

Well this all depends if you are doing it consciously or not. Is it something you've chosen to do?
The fact that you have an iron deficiency should be cause for concern and in fact you should be trying to do something about this; by eating more(specifically foods with high iron content such as beans, eggs, red meat, spinach etc).
Like others have mentioned, it could be a health problem if you are suddenly developing extreme thirst.

Take care!
