why not : sie kann naya schwimmen, as gut:good and naya:well

na ja is an exclamation -- it's the "well" in "Well, I don't know what to tell you". It's a bit like "y'know" or "to be honest".

It's not an adverb as in "he can sing well".

Can anyone tell me what's wrong with "Sie schwimmt gut"?

That would be "She swims well" and not "She can swim well".
