Default 2nd year applying for residency. Failed Step 3, what should I do?

Good morning everybody. I'm currently applying for residency this year, and it's my 2nd year applying. When I didn't match last year, I took Step 3, but I ended up failing the exam. I'm currently an US-IMG applying for Paediatrics, that doesn't need a visa.

I passed Step 1 (210) and CK (225) on the first attempt. Didn't pass CS on first attempt, and retook the exam, and passed.

I plan on taking Step 3 by end of next month. However, if I pass and try to submit this score - will PDs see that I failed the first time?
