Take her to the shower with you and let the steam rise it helps. May of caught some pollen.

Please Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird soon. It may have a respiratory infection.

If you do not have a water bottle for your bird to drink from, this could be what caused it. Birds that bathe and drink in water standing for more than 3 hours can get bacterial infections. The food debris and often poop in the water cause bacteria to grow quickly.
