My goat is "fake peeing"

Hello, I am very new to this and looking for advice before I call the vet. My milking goat is squatting like she needs to pee but nothing is coming out. She pees throughout the day normally but does this in between. I have noticed it for about a week now. Is this normal?

Is this while she's on the stand? Mine do that occasionally while they are on the stand, but it's because they want me to stop milking I think. How long ago did she kid? Is she acting normal otherwise, eating, drinking, pooping okay? Did you take her temp?
She doesn't do it on the stand. She mostly does it when my other goat is peeing. And when I bought her I was told she will need to get pregnant again end of this month or next at latest. She doesn't seem sick but I haven't taken her temp yet. Her poop and eating and all that are normal. It's so strange.
Is she smelling the other goat or anything when she does that?
You know she does smell her a lot. Not her pee but her... I'll watch to see if she does it while she's peeing.
That's what I thought. I just didn't know if it was normal or not before I call the vet
She maybe in heat....
My does do that sometimes.
Thanks guys. I will just make sure she doesn't get a fever and how much/long it last. I'll give it a few more days because she seems just fine besides that. Maybe she's just an awkward goat :)
