Question 5 wires

hello, i am trying to replace an electrical outlet in the bathroom, I have lost track of the way i took it out, there are 5 wires, 3 comming from the top that are black, red, and white, and 2 comming up from the bottom, that are black and white. This outlet also runs the ceiling fan and outlets in the bedroom. How do I fix it>

More correct to say you are replacing an electrical device. If the device is a single-pole switch that controlled the bath-room fan then the Red wire probably connects to one switch terminal, an 8" Black lead that is wire-nutted to the 2 Black wires in the box connects to the other switch terminal, and the 2 White wires simply connect together-----Good Luck!!!!!
