In brief: Yes. Have her seen.

It's so easy to have a baby roll over or scoot off a bed or changing table.
The facts that she is acting normally and cried right away - stopping with being picked up, are all reassuring. But i'd advise you to have your seven-week-old evaluated in the er just in case. Lgromkomd.

In brief: She should be fine

I hope she is anyway.
I see she hit her head 4 days ago. Be sure to let her pediatrician know that she fell so they can keep that in mind over the next few months. If no other symptoms develop, don't worry.
