So I bought a new guinea pig from Pet Smart and it has been sneezing a lot since I brought it. There's brown stuff on it's nose at times. But it's been eating and acting like a normal guinea pig so I'm not sure if it an allergy.

Often guinea pigs are sick when they're sold. She probably has a upper respiratory infection, which can be fatal if left untreated. You should bring her to an exotics vet (one that specializes in small animals and guinea pigs) to get a diagnosis and treatment.

Please do NOT take her back to Pet Smart for their vet to treat. Banfield vets have a terrible reputation, and few of them know anything about exotics. Google exotic vets in your area and find one that has training and experience with guinea pigs.
