She is not gonna die, turtles do sometimes eat the gravel. This can cause problems SOMETIMES in the digestive type area which I am not familiar with nor am I certain that it can cause problems. I mean in nature I\'m sure turtles eat all kinds of things they are not suppose to eat. To take away this eating the gravel problem, remove the small gravel and replace it with River Rocks, these rocks are far more attractive in the tank and your turtle won\'t be able to swallow those. I guess the rocks may just pass through the turtle as it\'s own feces would. Just keep a close eye on her.
