Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since she was hyperventilating and looking pale the Doctors would have suspected a clot formation in her legs which is a common place for clots to form which raises D-dimer levels. It could be that she had a placental rupture which caused all the symptoms and pre-term labour as well. She will need blood infusion in most cases. She should be fine as long as her blood starts clotting normally again.

Hi,thanks for query.Please keep a close watch on her.Admission for observation was in my opinion is a good idea.Though reports are normal ,she needs to be on regular observation.Give her rest and medicines and diet as advised.She is too young to become pregnant.Keep watch on her sugar with glucometer about 4-5 times in day.Also keep a tab on her blood pressure,this is crucial time of pregnancy complications.
wishing her good health.
