Traffic bug on repo

I have a repo that was public initially, made private later, and turned public again only a while ago.

My issue is, I had about 250 views with only 2 unique viewers before it turned private (I don’t know how THAT’s possible).

Once I had made it public, I checked the traffic and had 727 views with still only 2 unique viewers, and the graph even shows a view count when the repo went private for a few days.

How did the view count jump so high and how did my repo have views even when it was private? Also, is there an issue with the count of unique views?

Any form of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
