Default Chirping/sneezing noise?

Hi all, I got a black Syrian hamster a couple months back. She's so adorable and loving and gentle. I took longer than usual to clean her cage out this past cycle, and when I put her back in she was making a noise that sounded like some sort of puff, or a sneeze or chirp. She stopped eventually, and she didn't seem particularly agitated while she was having her "fit." I stuck my finger out towards her and she just sniffed me like usual, but then continued to explore the new bedding and make that noise.

Could it be that she was uncomfortable or apprehensive about the new bedding? I made sure to put all her stuff + a little bit of the old bedding back in, but it's also a new type of bedding (just Kaytee clean and cozy, I used to use Carefresh). I read online that it could mean apprehension, which makes sense. She's very gentle so she didn't get show signs of aggression, but I want to make sure I am keeping her as happy as possible.

Just curious if anyone here has any additional insight. It doesn't seem like a big problem, I'm just wondering why she might be doing that.

If the noise has stopped now, it was probably just her way of expressing that she is not happy that her home has been cleaned out and moved around

Appreciate the response, that makes me feel better! She is in her big wooden house/tunnel thing (the highest rated one from Amazon lol) which is where she always makes her home base. There's also a bit of food gone (she doesn't hoard). I take it to mean she's over it and has settled in.
