She may have a case of mastitis from her milk glands being clogged. That will need to be treated by the vet with antiobiotics and supportive care from you including hot packs to help the infection drain.
If she is older this could be a sign also of mammary cancer and again your vet needs to see her if that is the case.
Hope this helps you!
