when I hold Olivia she usually grinds her teeth and chews on my finger. I don't have a clue why she would do this since I hold her securely.

Teeth grinding can mean she is annoyed or uncomfortable. Many guinea pigs don't like to be held, they prefer to have their feet on the ground. Maybe you could try sitting her on the bed, couch, etc. with you and petting her to see if she is more comfortable like that.

You could also try wrapping her in a towel or blanket, which may make her feel more comfortable being held by you.
