At 5 months, she isn't being protective, that will come - if it does- around 12 months or so. Right now, this sounds more fearful - you do NOT want her to back up her bark with a bite.

Your first goal should be to get into training with her, best option would be with a club near by, next would be a trainer that knows GSD and large working breeds. This will get her on the road to training, gaining confidence, and also help you learn to handle her and also recognize the behaviors she is displaying.
