Reassurance is crucial

Trust makes for the largest part of a relationship. If, indeed, there is something wrong- her falling into the answer of “it’s nothing” could be due to her feelings of nervousness, embarrassment, shyness, insecurity, or fear. Nevertheless, just because she’s feeling one or more of these emotions at the time doesn’t mean she has to continue doing so. At best you might be able to diffuse any similar situations in the future before they even happen. Emphasising to her that she has options can relieve some pressure.

Sometimes we can be stubbornly curious beings. After all, it’s human nature to want to know and understand the world around us. All the same, this can lead to major downfalls in your relationship if you’ve just clashed with the ‘it’s nothing’ reply.

That’s still okay! The best thing you can do is remain humble and patient. DO NOT assert your obligation to know and continue pestering for a clear and thorough answer.
