Is it normal for weight to yoyo up and down even if you are eating healthy?
I lost 3 pounds and I was glad
Then I started to spontaneously gain back 7 pounds
Wasn't sure if it was muscle or water or fat
Then I lost 5 pounds so my net weight loss is 2 pounds in the last 2-3 weeks

Your weight may fluctuate up to 5 lbs from day to day, due to water weight changes. Without knowing what your specific dietary plan is, and your activity, we can't know if it's likely the gains are fat or water.
This calculator will give you an idea of what your calorie consumption should be for weight maintenance or fat loss https://www.freedieting.com/calorie-calculator It's unlikely you gained a significant amount of muscle mass in 2 - 3 weeks to make the scales change as you mentioned.
