Schnauzer started growling when picked up

I have an 8 month old schnauzer. She is sweet and friendly, to both people and other dogs.
However, she recently began growling a low, gutteral growl whenever we were going to pick her up. This has happened only when she has been lounging or tired.
I realize she probably does not want to be picked up and she is giving us a signal but I don't want her to get into the habit of growling just because I don't want it to lead to something more.
