>>ive got a female ig who is around 16 months, and i think she may be starting her first season but i dont know much about it, so i cant be sure.
>>she's not eating much and wont let me touch her alot.
>>from what ive read previously this is common when their in season.
>>do you think this is what it can be?

Thats a little early for first season, but it is entirely possible. This is also a time of year when temps fluctuate in homes with the cooling outside. Right now temps are hard to establish for a lot of keepers because it is cold in the house, but harder to keep the heat going because it isnt THAT cold! Check your temps.

If she is in season, you will notice a swelling in the belly and increased digging action. I attached a few articles for you at the link below. If she is exhibiting breeding season behaviors, be sure to increase her calcium until a few weeks after she lays her eggs.
