Went on a first date this week, went well.
I ended the night with a joke and text saying: See you sometime again x
She replies: Haha night x
Next afternoon I message her asking how her day was and what she is up to this weekend. No answer and didn't "read" my text but was online, so I leave it 24 hours and ask her whether she is free tomorrow night.
Her reply was prompt: sorry babe, have a friend's birthday x
Is that a cue for just leave me alone lol?
It's the first time she calls me babe though

I'd leave her alone. Not that she may not be interested but, you asked how she's going, you then asked to catch up. You SHOWED her you're interested. She'd have to be thick as hell to have to wonder "does he like me".
But ball is in her court. For me, if I was interested but truly busy I would say "sorry got a friends party, how about we meet...". So you tried, she denied that date, so it's on her to reset a time.
If you feel strongly about hanging out again, you could ask again in a couple days, but if she has plans then too just say 'well I'd like to see you again, how about you decide on a day". And just leave it up to her.1
