In brief: Probably not

For a 13yo puberty itself can cause fluctuations in emotion.
Menstratation is also a stress and some girls have emotional difficulty with (usually for "pms" a bit before the flow begins). For a young girl to c/o lonliness suggests that an evaulation by a helping professional is possibly indicated. She may need help and guidance with making appropriate peer relations.
