She is not eating much solids, presumably normal but should I give her more formula during this time?
She usually has morning mid afternoon and bedtime bottle.

DS now 8.5 months had tonsillitis about a month ago and didn't want to eat or drink. GP told us not to worry about solids if he didn't want them but to try to get milk into him and to offer it in smaller amounts and more frequently throughout the day. The cold makes it tiring for them to drink a whole bottle as it's hard for them to drink and breathe when they're all bunged up.

Hope that helps a bit.

Yes, offer more fluids, so she doesn't get dehydrated. And make sure sure she can always access water cup so can sip whenever she feels like - again, to prevent dehydration.
