Baby budgie acting weird, is she sick or stressed?

I just bought a budgie yesterday, she still seems to be only around 8 weeks old(white & lightish blue cere and she's pretty small).. She seemed very active and healthy in the pet store, but once i brought her home, she started jerking her head to one side like she's trying to stop herself from falling asleep, then kept looking up for a bit and would run around in circles if i let her out of the cage.. and outside the cage she keeps running around like she is looking for something, and keeps looking up a lot. I tried keeping her with my other budgies( both female and around 3 years old) but they were scared of her so i've kept her separately.

Budgie acting strange

You need to Find an Avian Vet to examine this bird in person. Dr B can not tell what may be wrong without seeing the bird in person, sorry.

Please do not delay. Since you have exposed your other birds without quarantining this bird, your other birds may have been exposed to a disease and may need treatment too.
