I wish I could answer your question as to why your daughter is reacting this way, but what I can tell you is that you are the person that is in the best position to find out what is going on.  Here are some suggestions:
1.  Is there anything that has changed in her environment, people, places, etc.?
2.  Ask her why she is doing those things.  Find a time that you can talk to her without turning it into a big deal---driving in the car, cooking, etc.  If she denies that anything is wrong, ensure her that if anything is bothering her that she can talk to you.  
3.  Have you talked to other people that she spends time with-babysitters, teachers, other family members?  They might be in a position to help you understand what is going on as well.
3.  Does she have physical symptoms-stomach aches, etc?  Is she eating & sleeping well?  You may want to take her in to see your doctor if there are any physical problems.
Your daughter may just be trying to test her independence, or there may be something else going on.  As a mom it is great that you are taking notice of these changes and trying to discover why she is acting this way.  Hopefully you can get to the bottom of this soon!
