Five week old refuses formula

Patient

Q: Help my case is a bit like the five month old that won't eat but different. My 6 week old just stopped taking the bottle in her mouth completely she won't eat. She will suck on a pacifier she's also pretty inconsolable probably a case of colic. But I'm worried because she's not eating only an oz every 9 hrs. I try and she screams like she doesn't want it then falls back to sleep. I figured she's crying for hours because she's hungry but she won't eat so I'm not sure what to do anymore
