Default New Russian dwarf hamster owner

Hey guys hope you's are all well and safe through these crazy times! I got a new hamster like a week ago. I had a guinea pig when I was younger but other than that I've mo experience with little furry friends. I'm just wanting to make sure everything is ok I wish I done a little more research before I went and bought one. I got her from a large chain pet store for a start. I gave her a few days to settle in before starting to try feed her treats from my hand. I'm just putting my hand in and still holding them while she eats. So far so good shes started to get more curious and now shes lunging for my hands sometimes in my eyes a little eagerly. On the whole her behaviour seems pretty normal seen as shes just settled into a new home I know they will act differently to start with but I've also noticed strange things like gnawing on her wheel not long after I had to fix it. Im worried its signs of her being aggressive she comes up a lot to my voice I thought these were all good signs to start with but my latest attempt of feeding her had her more interested in my hands again so I left them to see her reaction she nibbled once I stayed calm to see if she done it again and she did then as I pulled my hand away she, she momentarily tried to follow it. I know its hard to tell as shes young but does this seem like aggressive behaviour or just curiosity? Any advice is appreciated thanks Mel♡
