Red face my pup has a limp

So my 15 week pit woke up this morning jumped off the bed went to use the bathroom, got back on the bed went back to sleep. So when we got up and started doing our morning duty then I noticed she was favoring her back leg not putting any weight on it at all . I put her on the leash she acted just fine but still didn't put weight on it. I called her vet and they said just minister her and if it gets worse bring her in. What is this ? How do I help her? Is this serious?

inspect her paws. especially between the foot pads. check for anything that might be stuck in there.
using your hands, gently apply pressure to different parts of her leg. from her hip down to the paw. paying close attention to her response will help you determine what location is causing the discomfort. particularly the joints.
look for any swelling. or any differences compared to the good leg.
if you can't identify anything specific, crate rest for a day or 2 and keep monitoring. it will either correct itself with time. or go in for vet visit.

I would put her on crate rest where she stays in the crate and comes out to potty while on a leash so she can't run around and risk making it worse

Ok I have examined her paw and nothing in it. She is currently and has been laying down all day in front of my little portable heater. I am worried because she hasn't done anything out if the norm for her to act like this. Also I gave her fresh food and water, Sat her in front of her bowls and she won't eat or drink. I give her blue wilderness puppy. Overreacting or something wrong?

Update: she is using the bathroom normally, eating and drinking and on the leash still trying to lead me and run but won't put her left back foot down at all. Won't apply pressure to it all. Does not act like it hurts, let's me touch and rub her whole leg. But still limps. ???
