Firstly the itching and burning while passing needs to be investigated.You will need to get a urine test to rule out urinary infection.

There is also a possibility of a fungal infection.So you will need to get her examined by her doctor.

As far as the membrane you mentioned I would recommend that before we jump to conclusion get her thoroughly examined by her doctor to rule out any possibility of congenital abnormality related to her genitals.

Take care.
