Default Scared and still hamster

So I had my hamster for 2 weeks and she is very comfortable with me giving her treats. She is so energetic and happy, but, today my hamster wouldnt even take any treats from me and is very frightened and shocked of me. I thought maybe she didn't get enough rest so I left her alone and turned out all the lights. I checked again when the lights were still kinda dark, and she was still in the same position. She is breathing thankfully. What do I do???

It sounds as if she saw something out the corner of her eye and that made her go still. They do this as a protective behaviour to stop predators spotting them.
Females also stand very still with a glazed expression and their tail up when they are in heat. Was she doing that. They often do it when you stroke their back and can stand in the trance for ages!
