Premolar indeed as per her skin coloration :)
She should molt very soon. Please ensure she has fresh water in her enclosure and try to disturb her the least possible. Once you’ll see her starting to web the ground beneath her she’ll be ready to molt. Do not offer anymore food and remove all live preys from the enclosure. Once she has fully molted wait a good 2 weeks before offering food again :)
Hope this helps, cheers.
