Is it "vomit" or could it just be that she is Drooling? Is it definitely coming from the mouth, not nose? If it's Drooling then it could be teeth problems. If it is coming from the nose it is more likely to be a respiratory infection which can be serious.
As you mentioned guinea pigs can't physically vomit (as far as I know) but I don't know what else it could be.

I hope she is ok. Let us know what the vet says.

you probably wouldnt be able to tell though as chances are its far back, just visit the vets as soon as you can, and please do let us know how you get on, fingers crossed for you.
