A wet and dirty vent is commonly the sign of a GI tract disturbance which can be bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic and without having the droppings tested there is no way to know which it may be. Is she showing any signs of illness other then the dirty vent? Heavy metal poisoning can also have GI and urinary tract problems amongst others and the cage you have the bird in very dangerous. It appears to be made from a wire that is coated with zinc and in addition to that it is rusty, both of these things can lead to heavy metal poisoning if the bird ingests the zinc and rust particles off the wire.
Also the perch is not good, it would be best to have perches made of natural branches for proper perching and foot health, a square perch is not good for the feet and the bird will develop sores on the feet from it.
