That was my impression as well. I doubt Isabella is well acquinated with the castle. She only knew if she remained therein, she would be found.
Father Jerome informs Manfred that Isabella 'entreats your consent to remain in sancturary till she can learn news of her father; ' (ch. 2)
To speculate, this indicates it is Isabella's idea to reveal to Manfred her whereabouts and her intention, with the approbabtion of her guardins to dispose of herself in a suitable marriage.
Possibly, Father Jerome puts the words of a frightened girl into respectful terms for Manfred and Hippolita to hear.
What I still can't figure out is how Isabella knew of the trapdoor, how to open it & it led to sanctuary.
