Is she actually chewing it between her teeth or is she just playing with it and making it jingle while she just chews her teeth? It is pretty common for horses to play with or "chew" the bit when they have a chance to relax. Unless it turns into head slinging or some other major problem, I wouldn't worry about it.

Maybe it's too low? And are you sure it isn't the sound of her clicking her teeth together? Or maybe it's the sound of it hitting the front of her teeth, but isn't in between them? Does she seem upset? If not, I wouldn't worry.

Does she still have her wolf teeth? The bit could be hitting them. I agree with Ricci, if she is calm and doesn't seem to be upset and if there are no other problems; nosing out, head slinging, etc. then I wouldn't worry. Many horses chew the bit and most the time it is when they are relaxed.
