Default Advice please

I just picked up my baby 4 days ago she is almost two months old. I am slowly changing her food and noticed her poop is slightly green but today she had a clear sticky looking substance come from her back side. It looked like it had bits of feces in it. Anyone have any advice do I need to seek medical care for her or am I over reacting with her being my first.

That's a sign of a stomach upset. You shouldn't change their food or add any new foods for 2-3 weeks after bringing a hedgehog home. The stress of a new home combined with new foods can cause GI issues.

I just got my hedgehog yesterday her name is Tink. I just need lots of advice there are so many different opinions on everything. People say to leave them alone the first few days some say don’t. I have picked her up and she’s just curled into a ball and hiss and etc. I also have turned my hoodie around and put her in the hood and Layed and watched tv. I have heating and everything I need. She seems to be adjusting to her cage very well. She also is eating a lot and I have already managed to switch her food to healthy cat food because the breeder gave me no information about what food she used. Tink is already using her wheel and her poop is pretty solid she uses her litte hut to sleep in and burrows in the bedding. So she’s doing great in her cage but whenever I walk over to look in she gets very cautious and scared. And when I take her out she doesn’t move out from her ball whatsoever. I have an old tea shirt in her cadge so she can get used to my smell. I’m worried that I’m doing something wrong. Someone please help.

Your not doing anything wrong, you some hedgehogs just take a while to get used to people, and being handled, some never get used to it though but love you in their own huff way.
Swap the t shirt weekly to make sure your scent is always in the cage, I do that now even though Holly loves me but I still make sure she has my scent in her cage.
I use balls I made she has a felt cone ball, felt strip ball, she has a sock ball. And I rotate them around so that my scent is always in her cage.
