Default Is my budgie molting or sick?

Hi everyone!

I got two little budgies a few weeks ago and recently I've noticed that their feathers are coming off. They're about 3 months old so I'm assuming they're beginning their first molt. My female budgie (Mila) has had some pretty watery and discolored droppings for the past few days. I've kept their diet strictly on seeds for 2 days now hoping that it'll help her droppings form but I've had no success and as a first time budgie owner am starting to get worried. She's still very active and playing with her other budgie friend, is eating and drinking and sleeps throughout the night as well as takes naps during the day. Is this a normal molting symptom or should I take her to the vet?

Thanks in advance for your help!
