Do you mean she still has her legs tucked under her when she is laying on her side, or...?
Laying down on their side, AKA "Dead Bunny Flop", just means that they are very content and relaxed. Wild rabbits lay down with their feet right under them, so they can get up really quickly to escape from predators... So if you rabbit is in a position where it takes longer to stand up from, like on her side, then she is very comfortable with her surroundings, if that makes sence.
So basically, your bunny is very content and comfortable in her new home, which is awesome since youve only had her for a about week!
You seem to have alot of questions about behavior, so here is a GREAT site on rabbit body language: Language of Lagomorphs
