How old?
Is she in the house?
Under heat?
How is your water set up - if she's a chick
could she have a piece of the bedding stuck in her throat?
Pictures of your set up might help, also of her - specifically her comb and wattles to check to see if they're blue tinted. If they're not in at all it might not show.

I know this article is aimed at heat lamps, but Teflon is used as a coating on non-stick pans.

If they're scratched at all it lowers the temperature that the gasses are given off.

It's possible that could be the problem. Not sure though. Could be something else entirely.

Her comb looks fine, not blue at all, so she's likely getting enough oxygen.

If you shine a light into her nose holes is there anything in there? It's not likely, but also possible.

Can you get some more photo of her in better lighting?

What does she eat?
Where are you located in the world?

Do you notice any mucous coming from her nostrils, swelling of the eyes?
Is she the only bird you have?

What does her crop feel like?
Have you looked inside her beak for any lesions or canker?

Have you changed her environment, sprayed the room/house with cleaner/air freshener, etc. that may have irritated her respiratory system?

We try to maintain the house as clean as possible so we spray air freshener but barely,
