If its just little scratches then nail trimming will help the most.
As for her size, it's fairly normal for females to be smaller than males. As long as she's eating well, active, and using the litter box fine I wouldn't be worried.
My four have very different builds and weights, even the boys and they have the same mum! Jitzu is about 9lbs (and a little chunky, but not much), Torri is tiny at 5.5lbs, Doran is about 11lbs and Muffin is 15lbs.
