|What do you mean by "the spot were she's supposed to pee"?
If you are attempting to pee-pad train, that could be the start of your issues there.
A 10 week old puppy does not have sufficient mental capacity at that age to properly differentiate between the "pee-pad" and the carpet.
Sure, she scoots to where you are wanting her to go, but that doesn't mean that she is understanding that is where to urinate.
If you live in an apartment and that's your reasoning behind using these, try putting it out on the balcony. At the very least she will be able to tell some difference between the inside and out.
10 weeks old is much too young to expect to be even close to perfect, supervision and confinement at this age is key.
At this age you should be keeping a close eye on her at all times. Watch for telltale signs that she's needing to go (sniffing, circling, posturing etc.). The first sign you see of this, you take her outside or where you want her to go.
When she relieves herself in the correct spot, use lots of praise, let her know she is doing the right thing.
When you are not able to properly supervise, she should be in her crate.
