Hi, welcome both. Mattmanutd - what are the temperatures in your viv - cool end, warm end and basking spot. Do you have a log or stone for your beardie to bask on? How close can it get to the uv. Also she may be trying to hide in the plant as she is still shy. A pic of your set-up would also help.
Behaviour wise it is still a baby and you can't really expect it to be tame yet. How long have you had her? If it is just a few days then leave her to settle for a week or so otherwise you will stress her. After that you can try just putting your hand quietly near her for a few minutes - let her get used to your smell. In a few days / weeks she will get confident enough to walk onto your hand.
