In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

We are not responsible for
involuntary thoughts which enter the mind during acts
of worship nor do they affect their validity.

Therefore, there is nothing to worry about. You should
continue with your wudhu, ghusl and Salaat and perform
them according to the Sunnah of our beloved Rasulullah
(sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). Insha-Allah, through
the blessings of following the Sunnah, your thoughts
will disappear.

To dispel your thoughts you may also recite,

1) Ta'awwuz - i.e. Auzoo Billah ....

2) A'amantu Billahi Wa Rusulihi

And Allah knows Best
Wa Alaykumussalaam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
