Welcome to the forums,

If you notice laboured breathing (heavy, pronounced and rhythmic tail bob), discharge coming from the cere (wet sneezes that can cause discolouration on the feathers right above the cere), then your budgie likely has respiratory distress and needs to be examined by an avian vet specialist so that she is properly diagnosed and treated.
Other signs to watch out in sick budgies are decrease in energy levels/appetite/singing, and increase in sleep, fluffing up of feathers, dull eyes.

I hope your budgie feels better soon!

Hi there, and to Talk Budgies!

I agree with Aluz; it's important to be in contact with a good avian vet so they can ease your mind by treating and diagnosing accurately and illness they may have. Overall, looking at their condition, it may be a good idea to take them in for a checkup regardless of the severity of the symptoms.

Be sure to read through the forums to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care! If you have any questions after doing so, please ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around, and please keep us posted on how your budgies are doing!

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.

Distinction between an Avian Vet and a Vet that "Will See Birds"

Having your new budgie examined by an Avian Vet allows you to develop a good relationship with the vet in case your bird needs care for an injury or illness in the future. Additionally, it is always helpful for the vet to have a baseline for your bird to refer to should it need future treatment.
