This is my 3rd week home with my Cockatiel Cherry. I had bought her from a bird store at 7weeks and was not completely weaned yet. So I have been giving her 30 ml of formula a day with seeds and pellets in her cage. Today, she had 10ml of formula this morning and tonight she refused completely. I am worried. She doesnt seem to want to drink or eat her food at all tonight. It scares me.

Did she eat and drink food for adult birds during the day? Most baby cockatiels are weaned by the age of 10 weeks. If she is eating enough food on her own, she doesn't need to be handfed.

Keep an eye on her weight, and check to make sure that she's pooping well.

agree; my cockatiels also began refusing formula by 8 weeks. i still fed them in the morning/evening (if they accepted it) and made sure they ate seeds/pellets on their own. if she's eating fine then you should be ok! :)
