When I was dropping my daughter off at school last week a girl in her class walked passed us gave my daughter a mean stare and pointed at her and said "I dont like you and I still dont like you"
My daughter is 3 and loves all kids and loves playing and getting along with other kids. All the other kids in her class love her and will all run to her and hug her and say "Hi "when she walks in the room.
With that said this has bothered me since last week. I wanted to speak to the child and ask her why she doesnt like my daughter. I did not want to make her feel intimitated and didnt want her to cry so I did not say a thing. Again this is still bothering me. My daughter loves school and do not want a child getting in the way of her love for school. My daughter did tell me the girl is mean and is the only one that is not her friend. I wrote a note and will put it in my daughters folder just letting the teacher know. In the time time of bullying prevention I think the teacher should know. Especially when they are so young.
Am I overreacting or am I doing the right thing?

If I were your daughter's preK teacher I would want to know. I would not punish the other child, but I would keep an eye out for other conflicts. I had a boy in my preK class that was telling his parents about the other boys punching and kicking him. After watching the boy I found out they were retaliating to the rough play he was doing. I might have missed the problem if his mom had not come to me. I don't think sending a note to the teacher was wrong, but I don't think you should take it any farther either.
