A reference as part of your reference list goes at the end of your work and includes every single source you've looked at even if you haven't used it within your work. It's done in alphabetical order. A citation is part of the body of your work in the form of a in text citation such as Harvard referencing or in the form of a footnote such as Oxford referencing. In text citations come immediately after where you've immediately taken info from a specific source and you have to 'declare' that.
I'm not sure if you can do both. For my EPQ, I did vancouver referencing (As I did a science based EPQ) and therefore used numbers as my in text citations and then just had a bibliography at the end rather than a reference list, as we were advised bibliographies were easier as they only include sources actually used within your work.
Hope that helps!
