Does have a stuffy nose?  It sounds like maybe sinus drainage down the back of her throat is causing her to gag and cough.  Some benadryl would help dry up the drainage.   Do you have a vaporizer?  I've heard that vicks vaporub on the feet and then socks really helps coughing.  I've never tried it though.

I would not give either if she is spitting stuff up or vomiting since it could hurt her throat more.   Do you have any tea in the house you could brew for her?  That can help break up congestion as well.   A steamy bathroom could help like a vaporizer.

PS  cold medicines should not be given to children this young.

she isnt actually spitting anything up or vomiting shes just making the noise like she has to. kinda like dryheaving but the tylenol and cough medicince is for children 2 years and up and i didnt give her either since i figured it wasnt really pertaining to why she is dryheaving so i just put vicks on her feet (for children 2 years and up) and put socks on her to see if that helps

Good luck.  I hate when dd is sick and she refuses to take any medicines.

you do not give anything for naseua.  If you give her tylenol, she will probably toss it back up.  

The BEST thing for nausea is NOTHING.  You just wait about four hours.  If she doesn't throw up, then you try a saltine cracker or two and a SIP of room temp water.  If she keeps that down, then you allow the BRAT diet - bananas, or rice, or applesauce or toast.  These four things are easy to digest after an upset stomach episode.  If after 24 hours, she does not throw up, then you can ease her back into eathing normal foods.  If she throws up again, then you call your doctor.

It does sound like sinus drainage. Since you aren't sure, take her to get checked. Meanwhile something to soothe her throat- honey and lemon maybe, or sips of warm chicken broth. Please let us know what you find out?
