Should i be mad or understanding or take her to counseling?

I would not get mad about it. She just said she thinks she is that way. What you should do is sit her down and have a conversation and ask her what she thinks it means to be bisexual. Then depending on her answer and what you know on your own, you can explain it to her a bit more and find out at that point why she feels that way. You should also ask her where she has heard this and how the word was used by the ones she heard it from. Its not wrong for kids to explore who they might be or what they think of themselves. What is wrong is punishing them for it. Sending her to counseling over this would not solve any problems but would make more even.
