We've been together kind of nearly a year now (closer to over half a year but before a full year) but anyway, we had a bit of an argument a few weeks ago but it was quite pointless really. But I made her stand up, I looked in her eyes and told her that I loved her and wanted her in my life for the rest of our lives.
The way I worded it sounded like a bit of a proposal though, and she looked a bit shocked and I explained I didn't mean it like that, I just want to spend the rest of my life with her. I do want to get married some day but not this early on I guess..
Anyway, after that, the subject keeps coming up, I forgot what we said the other day, and today I mentioned a girl I saw on my Facebook newsfeed how she was complaining she was single one month, and the next she was engaged to some guy and she got married to him. And the conversation went from there then. I told my girlfriend I'd rather wait just over a year or two before anything like that happens, and she agreed, but something told me she was a little bit disappointed with that..
I feel like she maybe does want it so she can feel closer to me but I don't know..
Truth be told, on a different subject, I'm feeling a bit unhappy and unsettled with her at the moment. Yes I do want to be with her and I love her lots, but there's things going on at the moment..
But if she is unsettled over the other subject, is there anything I can do? Or say?

Girls tend to push for marriage or commitment when they are worried the relationship is dying. Maybe she is picking up on the vibes that you are unhappy with her at the moment.
You could try a "mini commitment" to make her feel better. Plan to do something with her that is a few months into the future, like a concert or trip. Then she knows that she is a part of your future without having to rush into a crazy marriage.
