Default Urgent! Throwing up hedgehog

There's white spots I'm guessing are vomit around my hedgehogs food bowl, there's one about the size of a quarter and 3 smaller ones.. I'm not sure if this is vomit or because she pooped on the bigger spot so I don't know if it's vomit or from her poop but the other places she pooped don't look like that.. Please help!
Her cage I think got a little chilly tonight even with her heater because it got really cold outside but I picked her up and cuddled her and let her run around to make sure everything was okay, she didn't seem like she was trying to hibernate..
PLEASE HELP

Also I turned her heater up higher because my room was cold, and she didn't go back to sleep in her tent she ran around and fell asleep next to it? Is it to hot in my room? Maybe her cage didn't get cold and it's to hot?

Can you take some pictures to post? It can be hard for us to say much about what it might be just from a description. Pictures would help a lot.

Do you have a thermometer in her cage? You really need to get one ASAP if you don't. A digital thermometer is best, you can get them pretty cheap at a store like Walmart. Until you have a thermometer to tell what the exact temperature is, err on the side of warmer rather than cooler just to be safe. Try to get a thermometer today or tomorrow if at all possible so you know what the temp is.

Yes I'll post a picture as soon as I get home and I'm on my way to get one right now

The poop is 2-3 days old now, I cleaned the rest of his cage I just left it there until I could take a picture! The stuff around it is just food, I just don't know what the white stuff is and I thought it was throw up and maybe he just pooped on it? It hasn't happened again since I posted this

I don't think that is vomit, but that is just a guess... I would guess it is diarrhea?
