I know it may not help to have one more person give you advice you don't feel like you can follow right now, but for someone exploring a new side of their sexuality for the very first time not feeling pressured is going to be essential. Give her as much space and time as you possibly can. Let her come to you as if she were a frightened cat -- coax her and call her but don't chase her.
I think taking time away from the world as you described above is an excellent idea.
