If you are talking about the day of the Election Day sermon, then she is confused because they have seen him in the forest and he has been very "close" to both Hester and Pearl. Also, we should note that Pearl seems to have a sixth sense about people and how they feel, so she does not understand why he seems somewhat aloof.
