You need to get her to a vet. She needs to be checked to make sure that she's developing correctly, that she doesn't have worms, and to get her shots. You should not be giving her the shots. She'll need a series of shots on a schedule until she receives the final series then she'll be fully vaccinated. Again a vet should be giving her the shots not you.
You'll have to work with her on bite inhibition since that is one of the things she would have learned from her siblings and mom. Once she's a couple weeks older you'll also need to work on housetraining and can start with clicker training but keep the sessions very, very short at first we're talking 2 minutes tops she won't have much of an attention span.
Be very gentle with her. She's an infant (around the equivalent of a 1 year old baby) and will get scared easy. Try to not yell at her or scare her, keep all interactions with her positive and please remember that she will test your patience, and in a week or two may turn into a demon shark puppy. It's normal and just takes consistency, patience, love, and lots of redirection to get through!.
Read the sticky in the housetraining forum for tips on housetraining, the stickies in the training forum will also be helpful for you. If you don't have it already buy the book Puppy Primer
