You are asking question regarding to development but you did not mention age/ birth history of child which is important t0 answer your question.

Don`t panic. Calm down, be courageous and get her treated.

Normally child walk alone by 15 month
Usual time of eruption of deciduous teeth- 6 to 8 month

Red sign:
If your child does not walk alone by 18 month.

I would advice:
You should get her evaluated once for her complaint to get her examined physically by a pediatrician.
Wait and watch

Wishing your Child milestone speedy recovery.
