Could just be something wrong with her throat if she has allergies or something like that.  Also could very well be a tic.  I would ask your doctor about this.  good luck

Constant or repeated throat clearing in a child can be a habit he/she may have picked up from somewhere. It can also be due to post nasal drip (if the child has recurrent upper respiratory infection/sinusitis etc) or due to gastric reflux. It can also be a vocal tic. Seasonal allergies can irritate the throat and cause the urge to clear the throat. Please show your child to an ENT specialist and pediatrician. Take care!
