Hi sean;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The warm body can be due to fever and she may be having some sort of infection may be a viral/bacterial.The racing heart beat is because fever gives rise to increase in heartbeat and pulse it is called tachycardia(increased pulse rate).Please get her to a doctor for examination and treatment.
