she is eating and drinking and she is not lethargic

Fraiza, it sounds like she may have an upper respiratory infection. The best option is to have her checked by family veterinarian to start her on oral antibiotics. In the meantime, open the hot water in your bathroom and allow her to breath the vapor/steam for 5 minutes 2-3 times a day, this will help clear her nasal passages.
