I have two female guinea pigs and Waffle, one of them has been very mad at my other pig, lava for around a month. There are no bites or anything but waffle rumble struts at lava even when they aren't close together. Waffle rumble struts ever 5 to 10 minutes sometimes for no apparent reason. Should I seperate them for a couple of days, should I just let them work it out, or should I take her to the vet?

How old are your guinea pigs and how long have they been together?
Are you 100% certain that both of them are girls?

To be honest this sounds like perfectly normal behaviour between two guinea pigs.
Rumble strutting is usually as sign of confidence or happiness - not anger.

You might find some of the behavioural threads helpful to work out what different noises can mean.

Given her age then I would have her checked for potential ovarian cysts. A symptom of cysts can be behaving more hormonal than normal. The guide swissgreys linked in explains.
