Default Weird hibernation attempt!!! Please help

My hedgehog sprinkles will be a year old on the first of December. When I got her at the beginning of January last year she tried to hibernate once because my room got a bit chilly. This time the symptoms are mostly the same, she is wobbly, very huffy, and cool in the stomach area. But this time I also found a brown liquid in her litter box, I don't know if it is pee or what but we never had this problem before. She is on a heating pad right now in my lap.
Please help, I'm scared.
P.s. sprinkles has not had a food change has gotten the same water as always, but my schoolwork has led to decreased times to play and cuddle lately.

Could it be diarrhea? I know this sounds gross, but I think you would need to inspect it a bit to have a better idea of what it might be.

If it's light brown, kind of beige, maybe it's vomit? I am not too sure T: but from my experience, Wontons vomit is light brown coloured.

Was there an obvious reason (too cool temp, cool draft, not enough light) for the hibernation attempt? If not, that + possible diarrhea or vomit makes me think the attempt is possibly a symptom of illness, and would schedule a vet visit.

So I'm no longer sure if it is related to hibernation anymore. Today there was normal stuff in her litter but when I went to change out her box she had pooped under it. I'm sure it must be diarrhea. She is used to having bedding in her litter box but we ran out recently and haven't got a chance to restock, could it be related to that??? Please respond ASAP because I'm quite concerned.

She isn't acting strange at all she is still her sweet old self. My mom who is a nurse says that if she's acting normal she's fine but everything I've read says otherwise.

I don't think the litter has anything to do with her diarrhea. Anyway, she could just be having a bad tummy ache that night. And why do you think she is not acting right?
