|The nesting might just be because it's winter (if it gets cold where you are). Maybe she's even just... cold, and telling you she hates it. My cat spent all last winter following my mom around the house and crying to be picked up, because the floor was cold, he likes to be held, and he wanted to be off the cold floor and in warm arms instead.
Then again, if it is whining AND nesting, and your dog is female, maybe it's a false pregnancy? If she's not fixed I'd suspect that, if she is, it can, very rarely, happen in cases of a failed spay (and is a situation to be medically dealt with because incomplete spays can be dangerous).
Though I think the most likely culprit is attention. A mix of NOT giving ANY attention EVER for whining and giving some good rewards for behavior you DO like should hopefully have her quiet again soon.
