Two possible causes would be infection or menopause. If infection is the culprit, the sweats would occur during the day as well, and there would be probably be other symptoms. The most frequent cause of night sweats among women is menopause. Early-onset (sometimes called 'premature') menopause can occur in women as young as 20. If you continue to have symptoms, and it's uncomfortable for you, consult your family practitioner or ob/gyn. They can prescribe medicication that will help the symptoms.
