Bipolar Disorder might be a POSSIBLE diagnosis in the situation you describe, but normal adolescence is a much more likely and common reason for such behaviours. The best way to clarify what is troubling her and how best to deal with it, would be to take her to see a good local child psychiatrist or child psychologist, for a full assessment and then a discussion of your concerns.
