Pictures would help. Can't judge from words whether or not a scrape is 'bad' enough to call the vet.

I don't have a pic at the moment.It is not bad I just want to know if I should clean it to make sure no bacteria would get in what would I use?

If she's licking at it, there isn't anything you can put on it.

Would it heal on its own and should I just put water on it?

Without pictures any advice we give you would be worthless.

Green Broke
Check her teeth & make sure none are broken.
When she drinks water she'll clean it herself, then take a good look at it.
