My hamster acting strangely, can anyone tell me why!?!?

I have a winter white (or at least hats what kind the people at pet smart said she was) hamster, I got her on the 6th of march this year and she was literally like the sweetest thing! She really didn't bite once she realized that I was the one who fed her and she was very quiet and clean. But now, I don't know if you'd call it all of the sudden, but she's sleeping in weird places and biting, the other day I found her asleep upside down in one of her tubes! I figured she was crawling down and got stuck and when she didn't know what to do she fell asleep. Well when I saw her I immediately thought she was dead, we pulled out the tubes but she slid right out onto her head, but she ultimately seemed fine. I took away the tunes and stopped giving her her treats for a while. Now she seems depressed, un comfortable, irritable, unfriendly, and just strange. I really hope she's okay, I know it's probably my fault, so please don't remind me, this IS my first hamster, however I have had small animals before.
Please help, I really miss my 'old' hamster.

Its a 'she' right? Depending on the description you have said, it seems like she's pregnant. I'm not really sure but its a possibility because its similar to the behavior a woman would have in the same condition except they don't bite. She's going to be okay, so don't worry, yeah? :)

There isn't another hamster though, unless she's been pregnant since march.

Hmm I suppose she could be pregnant but there's one question behind that: did she have any 'special friends'? But anyways Im honestly not sure.

Your hamster will be fine. Your hamster is probably going through a phase.

Sounds like she could be pregnant! Give her some space and show her you care
