if her hemoglobin is less than 10 gr ...simple baseline tests should be done first like
- check for any abnormal blood loss
- coplete blood picture
- pcv,mcv,mch,mchc,serum iron studies,serum B12

if something wrong in these tests ,then further investigations needed
directly one should not go for bone marrow biopsy
