I wouldn't worry about her behaviour, it's quite natural really if she still isn't really tame or you've been cleaning a little too much she will be sensitive to her stuff being messed with for a while but she should get used to it!
Don't expect her to necessarily begin using the tray immediately although it does happen just be patient & persevere.

You could try, I have one & they are very cute but I haven't tried using it as a litter tray.

I use ceramic rabbit's food dishes as sand baths for my roborovskis, a rabbit corner litter tray for one of my syrians (who LOVES sand bathing)

Hi, how often do you clean her cage out?

it could well be that she is in heat when she is smelling bad

Do regular spot cleaning especially if she isn't potty trained x

I'm looking for a litter tray for a dwarf hamster. So I don't think I will need something huge. Most of the ones I've seen go to a corner. But I'm looking for one that I can put next to her little house she loves to sleep and pee in.

Have a look round your kitchen!
Any small, say a few inches round or square, ceramic, glass, plastic or metal container will do, you just want something easy to clean, sides not too high, no rough edges.
This is an example of one dish I use, I also use these (without the lid obviously!) you could even just use a hamster food bowl or something similar, it doesn't have to be something sold as a litter tray.

ETA Here you can see how I have both of those in Mickle's cage if that helps give you an idea.

I use these from Wilkinsons. They are big enough for a Syrian

How often do I change the bedding if she is not potty trained?
