Autism is diagnosed based on impaired or delayed social skills, communication skills, and stereotyped behaviors.  Your description doesn't really note whether you have concerns about her social or communication skills, but it is apparent that you have some concerns in general about her reactions to things.  Although I really can't say whether you should be concerned about autism specifically, I'd suggest that you speak to her pediatrician about your concerns.  Your pediatrician can help you decide whether additional assessment is needed and direct you to a professional who can help.
