Its been happening since day 1 I got her. Anyone know what it is? Or if its serious? She doesn't look to be in pain but I'm still concerned for her she's about 10 weeks old.

It's called "The Silent Meow" and it's perfectly normal. Some cats do it and some don't. I guess you could compare it to a human whisper. Don't forget, cats can hear higher frequencies than humans, so to her she may be thinking she's talking out loud whereas our dullard hearing can't pick up that high frequency.
