I'm not seeing any cause for concern here, at all? Except that she could do with a rehouse to a bigger enclosure, provided with a hide, and a water dish.

Looks like it's just getting a drink to me. This species does fine on dry substrate, but they need to have access to water at all times just like any other species.

Dehydration and DKS aren't mutually exclusive,. Dehydration can lead to DKS , buts it is not always the cause of DKS. Hopefully that clears it up a little.
