In brief: Yes

It could be thrush, also known as yeast in the mouth.
Usually true thrush is almost impossible to "scrape off" the tongue. Try wiping the tongue with a clean wet wash cloth. If if comes off it probably isn't thrush and is just milk deposits from feeding. If it is whitish, velvety and doesn't come off you will need to seen medical attention for a prescription to kill the yeast.

In brief: Thrush?

Take your baby to her doctor to be sure she doesn't have thrush.
Thrush is a yeast infection that babies commonly get in the mouth. As long as it really is just from milk, then there is no reason to remove it. You could wipe her tongue off with a cloth, but some whiteness will likely remain. It will go away when she starts eating more solid food. Congratulations on your new(ish) baby!
