In brief: Monitor

This may have only been a "bad night" on her part.
It would be best to keep to your regular routine and give her the expectation that everything is ok. If she continues to have problems, it would be good to have your pediatrician evaluate her for possible illnesses that could disrupt her sleep schedule.

In brief: Not unusual

Your child maybe coming down with an illness or maybe her molars are coming in.
Be patient and hopefully it was just a one night deal.
