4 Year Old School Behavior Normal??

My four year old daughter is having issues at daycare/school. I have never had any issues with her at school before, she has never gotten in trouble. Recently she has been having issues with some of her friends. At first it started with her telling me that she has no friends at school and that some of the kids hit/kick her. I spoke with the teachers about this and they addressed my concerns then told me that my child is always asking "Are you my friend?" to the other children at school. When they say no she gets upset and begans crying. She ask this constantly to kids and teachers. She also has recently developed what I geuss you could call a crush on a little boy. Today I was informed that she got upset and started crying because some other girl said she was going to marry this boy. I don't know where this is all coming from. I have tried to talk to her about asking if kids are her friend but she continues to do it, I have also talked to her about this crush and told her kids do not get married and that boys are yuck but she doesn't want to hear it. I am wondering if she is insecure at school or what could be causing these two issues? Is the whole your not my friend thing normal for kids this age? Is there other things I should be looking for or things I can do to address this? Apparently none of the other kids do this at school or so I am told. Any help or input would be great! I feel so bad for her but I don't know what I can do.
