Need some help/suggestions/comments from people with experience. My little girl pinches herself when I dicipline her. She also does it to me too, but I'm more worried about her doing it to herself.

How old is she and how are you disciplining her? A little 'self harm' in toddlers is fairly normal as they are dealing w/ emotions too powerful for their limited maturity. She is not likely to cause herself any real harm and is likely to stop if she does hurt herself. However, if you are disciplining too harshly or it's a continuing behavior or if she is an older child... it may be something to look deeper into.
