Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It depends...
Nothing may happen...

Taking twice may result in bleeding - the hazard depends on the site and amount...for example, even small bleed is dangerous, if in brain

Missing a dose increases the chance of clot formation... on the valve..

It depends...

Regarding dizziness, you may have to see ENT and/or Neurologist.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
