I bought a 9-weeks old bunny on Xmas eve. On the 28th of Dec, in the morning, my brother fed her some lettuce (it wasn't the first time) but that day, there was green gooey stuff whilst she was eating, and for the whole afternoon and a bit of evening, she won't poo. Why is this? did the lettuce got something to do with this?

I don't tend to blame the lettuce off-hand. Perhaps it had some germs on it. Perhaps it was sprayed with insecticides. Maybe it wasn't the lettuce, it was the chunk of apple the rabbit got into. (Just saying, since I really have no idea what it's been into, lol.)
At any rate, your bunny is experiencing a touch of mild bunny diarrhea, which might take care of itself, or might turn into a big problem.
What to do: Give the bunny nothing but grass hay to eat for the next 48 hours, okay? No treats, no pellets, no nothing except water and hay.
I fully expect it to completely recover in that time frame, its normal poo will return and you can put it back on regular rations.
