In brief: May be her normal

Infants often make odd sounds and seem to strain in the usual course of their day.
If she is feeding,sleeping, stooling and growing okay I would not assume she is in pain. If the process bothers you enough, have her doc examine her to see if there is any issues to treat, if not, let her be.
