Can anyone confirm this “just-weaned” Parrotlet is “just molting”, or is her lack of face feathers something more?

I can't decide whether this is just old food or mites - there's no visible damage to the beak so likely the former. Make an avian vet well bird appointment to rule out mites but offer baths in the meantime. You could try cleaning her face with moist q-tips, if it's food it'll harbor bacteria.

Sorry I don´t know.

If this is a new bird (you said just weaned), then defo be sure to have the first check up sooner rather than later and discuss it with the vet.
