There is a lady that I work with. We're not really friends, just see each other in passing but we have to work in the same office. She is very open and friendly with other employee's, laughs and jokes with them, says hi, smiles and things like that. When I see her I smile and say hi, she just says hi with a straight face then walks away. If we're at lunch with a group of people and she see's me there she ignores me except for random eye rolls when I say something that she finds annoying. If I make a joke or something and other people laugh she just says, "Hmm Funny" with a straight face. I am always nice to her but I don't go out of my way to be friendly, I'm just not rude and since I get the impression that she really doesn't like me I just try to avoid her when possible. I just don't get it really. I never did anything to her, I don't think I'm annoying. Maybe my feelings that she doesn't like me are wrong and she is cold because of my trying to keep my distance. I just feel awkward when she is around because if she is laughing and having a good time with other employee's and I walk into the room she gets this look like "Oh great her again". I'd like to clear the air and find out why she has a problem with me but at the same time, I feel it's best to let sleeping dogs lie.
What are some of your thoughts?

I wouldn't open that can of worms if I were you. Besides, would knowing what her reason(s) were change anything? Just go to work, do your job & ignore or avoid her as much as humanly possible. Like you said, you've done nothing to her, so trying to get to the bottom of something you've never done would be futile. Just enjoy the comradery of the co-workers you do get along with.

From my personal experience, it usually doesn't help the situation to ask what the problem is. It usually is some imaginary issue they have with you, and you will never convince them otherwise. That would mean they were wrong. Can't have that.
