Can a baby this age throw a fit?

She is 7 months.  She has started to make this god awful noise when I sit her down or put her in her car seat. She kicks her legs and makes this ear splitting, growling screech. She will scream, growl, and kick until she is bright red in the face.
And the minute you pick her up, she stops and is all smiles.

It's so awful! It sounds like she is hurting or just angry.. Should I still pick her up or should I do something to discourage it? That is one question..

Are you okay continuing to pick her up or does it get old for you?  That is the question- are YOU willing to pick her up when she does this or do you think she needs time not held by you.  I personally can't handle crying, bawling, or tears, but an attention grabbing screech when I was occupied with laundry/dishes/homework could go a few minutes.

Yes.  My son is 7 months also and he does a loud scream and kicks and throws his arms.  It is very clear that he is just angry, not hurt or needing anything.

 LOL, yep my lil guy hated the car seat at that age and would throw a fit every time we put him in the car seat.
