It could be for many other things too. Probably she is unhappy about her siblings or some quarrels in the school. Or she should have seen something which should not.... Talk to her nicely kn these aspects and encourage her to share anything with you. Sometimes you don't know whether there was any child abuse so. Take her into ur confidence by allowing her to be with you.

Hi First of all, the child is very young, she might be thinking that if she shares the problem might be you may not give importance/ wont believe or it might be that she doesn't no to express the problem. Sometimes children may not able to label the feelings that they are experiencing. there are many reasons that children feel scared to express anything. During this situation give support to the child, care them , be humble , don't express anger/ shouting at the child doesn't help. You can take the help of the counsellor/ psychologist. take care. thank you.
Health Tips
support the child, engage the child with interested activities (play item).

Let me add to what has been already opened that this is a very common issue and generally no evidence that this will affect her long term health.
Next Steps
Please don't fuss too much Be calm and handle it as normal Encourage and use stories to normalise it Gradually reintroduce her back to her bedroom with lot of reassurance
