My little girl is 10 weeks old and will not take her hand out of her mouth and keeps sucking it, she seems to be just figuring out what her hands are for and she's throwing then around everywhere! But could this be a sign of teething?

Your baby has probably just discovered her hands. It is a developmental milestone, and realised that they move and fit in her mouth. She is discovering that she has some control over them (which is what the throwing them around is about).

She "could" be teething, but what she is doing is actually a normal development in the journey of self-discovery :)
