While this was never completely spelled out for us (that whole exchange was written kind of poorly, IMO), I'm guessing that Nicole settled Eric's bill for him because he hadn't prepaid for his hotel stay and was in no condition to sign for the payment himself before abruptly being checked out of the hotel and rushed to the hospital that night. If you pause the hotel receipt at the right moment (as I have), you can see that the hotel bill is for Eric's hotel room (he is listed as the occupant), but it was paid using Nicole's credit card (she is listed as the account holder).
As for the rest, Marlena (or any other psychologist or psychiatrist) would recognize that as classic displacement. He's upset about his recurring dream/memory and he's taking it out on Nicole. It's not coming across as anything more than that right now (to me, at least). Every time that he has snapped at her recently, it's been because she interrupted a memory of his dream or she tried to probe for more details about what had happened to him at the hotel that night. Kristen isn't doing that, which is why he doesn't seem cold or uncomfortable when he's around her.
