Thank you for your question. It is difficult to be sure about an answer to your question. Your daughter does not appear to be ill and she still eats quite well, but will not drink enough despite your best efforts. She does not have a fever. There is certainly the danger that she may become dehydrated.
Her refusal to drink is not likely to be due to a new tactile aversion problem with the teat of her bottle as she also refuses to drink from a sippy cup. She also refuses a wide range of fluids despite your best efforts to get her to drink. Her present fluid intake is certainly very low and is of concern. Please look in her mouth and see if you can spot any sores on her tongue or on the inside of her cheeks. There is a common viral illness at this age known as herpes stomatitis that causes painful ulcers in the mouth. Commonly children with herpes stomatitis may eat quite well but will not drink fluids. In any case with the weekend coming up it is important to ask your paediatrician to see your daughter urgently as there is the definite risk of her becoming dehydrated.
