Default 16week old growling at kid

I'm not sure whether to be worried or not. We have a friend's child visiting, he is 9 and our 16 week old gsd was sleeping on the floor & the kid went over & started rubbing her. She growled a low growl at him but he kept rubbing her. She growled again & I said 'no stop that'. He kept rubbing her. By then I should have stopped him but I was on the phone. Then she growled again & went to nip him but he pulled away in time.

Now we have 3 children ourselves & this hasn't happened to them. I know she was giving him a warning that he ignored but was she out of line? I'm starting puppy training classes with her on saturday too.

Thanks for any feedback.
