39.5C is a high temperature,even for an adult. You don't say how old your baby is but I would DEFINITELY be contacting your pediatrician about this.
If you gave paracetamol to her a few hours ago, take her temperature again now and then call her doctor if it is still high. State where on her body (e.g. mouth, under the arm) you took the temperature (this is important as different locations can alter the result, so they need to know in order to assess how high a temperature you're really talking about) and tell them the reading, plus any other symptoms that she has.
