Are you trying to feed in an uninteresting area? A lot of times at that age they are seeing all new things and don't stay focused for the feeding. Another thought would be thrush? Does baby have white spots in her mouth that won't wipe away? My final thought would be nipple confusion and her preferring the bottle to the breast.
You can tell if you have a low supply by baby's output. Is she wetting diapers? Is she gaining weight?

I would go to the doctor to check on an ear infection since you are saying she is pulling on her ear. It does not sound like supply is the problem. Normal wet diapers, normal growth = perfect supply for your baby If the bottle is a new thing for her it very well could be nipple confusion. Good Luck! I am sure things will get better real soon.
