Growl/Barking at oncoming people on walks?

Hi all,

Im new here and my wife and i have had our pup Indy for just on a week. She is now 3 months. She is a gorgeous pup and is very playful and friendly with us. We began socialising her with our friends chocolate lab and they both get on really well. We are also starting puppy class in a couple of weeks. We have been taking her for short walks aroundaround the block and have noticed that she tends to growl or bark at people who are walking towards us. She ignores people who are down their driveways and yesterday she even approached a woman sitting at a bus stop fine. So why the growling and barking? And what do i do about it?
