Daughter will be 3 months on the 24th and I noticed she has her hands in her mouth more than usual and has been sucking on them and ber bibs. Also drooling a bit. This dosnt mean she's teething already does it? I'm a first time mom.

This is common behavior of a 3 month old. Around 3-4 months babies start to develop more saliva in their mouth thus drooling more. They also start to learn more developmentally and start to stick things into their mouths. A 3 month old could possibly be teething at that age also, but it is more common for teething to start around 6 months. But just like everything else developmentally with babies each baby is different and what one baby does at one age another will do at a different age. There are some babies that will get their first tooth at 2-3 months and others that don't get their first until 12-13 months. Though the most common for a baby to get their first tooth is at 6 months.
