Default New bedding? Licking nose and lethargic

I brought my very first hedgie home two weeks ago. I was running low on the bedding I got from the breeder so I bought some new stuff. I thought it was the same brand but it's not. Two days after putting it in her home she has started to lick her nose a lot, she has sneezed a few times, and she is more lethargic than usual. Could this be a URI/ do I need to get her to the vet asap? Or should I change the bedding and see if she is feeling better in a day or two?

If she's becoming lethargic then it probably isn't the bedding. I would take her the vet right away.
