Probably something happened, she attended a conference or something totally unrelated to you, and learned that hugging isn't practiced by most therapists. By all means talk to her about it next time and tell her how hurt you were, and how confused because of the other time.

Are you allowed to call her between sessions? Instead of having to obsess about it till the next one?

I'm not sure if my therapist would hug me or not. I wouldn't want him to. I almost suspect he doesn't have a problem with it. He said he used to hug all the time, but doesn't do it much any more because of the legal ramifications. He shakes my hand when I ask him to.
