In brief: Many possibilities
Could be from a dental infection, could be from a salivary gland infection, could be a small stone trying to get out.
She needs to see a doctor right away as infections in the floor of the mouth can be serious and spread.

In brief: Many things
Could be a trauma, salivary stone, infection, cyst or tumor.--in that order of probability.
Need history. What happened last night? Traumatic kissing/oral sex common. Pain w/ stones gets worse after eating. If not obvious, or no resolution in 2-3 days, see dentist for evaluation.
