Don't put a pad or towel in for now - she is not ready for it. Most dogs are fine with just the crate. I have a couple dogs that absolutely hate padding in the crate and will push it against the crate door so they can just sleep on the floor. Depending on how she was raised, it could be possible the breeder trained her to go on puppy pads - I have a couple that used to pee on dog beds because they were used to going on a pad while they were being weaned. When she is ready for a bed and older, you can introduce one if you like. But till then, let her be in the crate
