Brief Answer:
Yes, this can be a kidney infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Yes, this might be a kidney infection. Especially if she also has fever, burning while urinating. You may try to knock her gently in the kidney area. If this will cause the pain, kidney infection it is.
If she has some bleeding from vagina, other possible issues including uterine cancer should be also considered.

At her age, kidney infection can be very serious condition. That is why she should have urine analysis done as soon as possible and antibiotic prescribed. She should also drink plenty of liquids and may start cranberries supplementation.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
