Rabbit droppings are actually an organic manure, a form of nitrogen which is good for your lawn, unless of course there are huge piles of the droppings. In this case they can burn the lawn. If you simply rake the piles down so the pellets are evenly distributed over your lawn you shouldn't have a burning problem and you probably won't have to fertilize your lawn for the entire season! As for the bare spots, rake out the dead grass and broadcast grass seeds over them. Water well and keep the seeds moist. They should sprout in 7-10 days and fill in those dead spots in a few short weeks.

Best wishes with your garden!
