Welcome to the forum! She's a good looking dragon =). They do love sleeping in odd positions. There is a whole thread about it on here with photos of them https://www.beardeddragon.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=141955

I do advise getting rid of the red light as that may disrupt her sleep. If the temps in her tank stay above 65 or so overnight, you don't need any additional heat. If the temps need a boost on cool nights, I suggest using a low wattage ceramic heat emitter or a MegaRay heat projector. These produce heat without visible light and are great for overnight heating as needed.

They know how to get their human slaves to love them , that's for sure.

They also know how to get their human to do their bidding too.

You are in for a wonderful adventure learning about your little spikey 4 legged scale child. Enjoy , and spend as much time with him / her as you can while he/she's small and goofy and curious.

Just another thing - best to get rid of the current bedding (coco peat ? is fine for bluetongue skinks and waterskinks , but inappropriate for central bearded dragons) , I find hatchlings like your's do very nicely on absorbant paper sheeting (2 or 3 sheets layered taken from the roll everyone has in the pantry.
Makes for very quick and easy cleanup (a little hatchling like you have is going to need feeding with live insects (best feeders are BSFL, blowfly gents, housefly gents, silkworms, crickets, roaches or locusts sized to suit) at least twice per day and will poo just as frequently.

The bedding you have is an impaction risk as some will accidently ingested with the food and if it's not digestible then it can cause blockage and impaction which is going to be very bad for such a young dragon.
I concur regard the red light / night light.

Cooper Dragon— I had recently read about red lights and recently changed it. My house is cold so I have a ceramic heat bulb and a moonlight bulb which doesn’t produce much light at all.

Kingofnobbys— Thank you for the advice! I love spending time with her and watching all the weird things she does lol. In regards to the bedding it is actually Eco Earth which is ok if she ingests it. But it is just temporary. It came in the kit I bought so I am waiting for the bag to run out then I will switch to something easier.
