Hi "To do or not to do"
Your pup is far too young to be fully house-trained, although it seems she has the right idea. Young pups are often afraid to venture out in case they are threatening another animal's territory or in case of predators (instinct). If I were you I'd either leave her outside (with good shelter from the weather) or make a temporary toilet for her inside, using newspaper, straw, soil or a patch of real grass on a plastic sheet. At first put it where she has done her business before inside. Gradually move it towards the door and in a few weeks time you will be able to put it outside.
