Many babies and young children have a problem with loud sounds and noises. It is known as 'hyperacuisis' In most case it simply disappears as a problem. If the problem persists and especially if you are concerned that she is developing any signs of unusual behaviour in the future please consult your paediatrician. Please look up 'hyperacuisis' on Google.
