This is likely a stomach virus that she has and usually those pass in less than a week
But if she's having any abdominal pain this could be appendicitis or a bacterial bowel infection like E coli or salmonella
At this point I think it would be best to take her to the doctor for an exam and some tests to make sure she doesn't need antibioitics or a ct scan of the abdomen
Hopefully she's drinking plenty of liquids for now
Let me know if you need any more information please
