Default Nervous female budgie

So guys, I was on a vacation over the weekend and when I got back i noticed something strange about Ada(my female budgie that i got about two months ago, she is 6 months old now) .She is going at the bottom of the cage and is hitting at the walls of the cage.She is always stretch and like always ready to bite. I do not know why this is happening, because she was not alone over the weekend. My parents were there. Please some advice ? She is like really nervous and always squawk when i approach my hand near the cage and tries to bite me. Thanks in advance.

What do you mean by hitting the walls, is she focused on a specific corner while on the bottom of the cage? Is her cere dark brown in colour?

From your description it's very possible your budgie girl is hormonal and showing signs of broodiness and wanting to nest.
And if that is the case, then this behaviour should be discouraged. You can rearrange her whole cage or even moving her into a completely different cage, if you have a spare one. Reducing the amount daylight hours is also helpful to throw her off the nesting mood.

Was she displaying any of this behaviour before, or just since you got back?
Did she allow your hand near her before?

I wonder if perhaps something frightened her while in your parents care that startled her and she's a little nervous.
I'm sure someone will come along with some good advice soon.

She was used to my hand before i left, she was not always prepare to bite, she was relaxed, fluffy most of the time, taking naps, singing most of the time. But now she is stretched and ready to bite, she is singing little and squawking much more.

Her cere is normally white. I also noticed something about her wings, they are not fully closed, they are vibrating(don't know if it is the right word), but like nervously. Also she is stretched all the time?

Hello can you possibly post a picture of her so we can see what you mean? Did your parents feed her something that she normally doesn't eat. If she still is displaying this behaviour and doesn't improve I would be taking her for a check up at the avian vet.
