Dziewczynka is the diminuative form of Dziewczyna. So, Dziewczyna means 'girl' while Dziewczynka means 'little girl'.

Dziewczynka is used for children while dziewczyna is used for teens

"Dziewczyna" also means girlfriend, if used with something like "my", "his," etc.
e.g. "Moja nowa dziewczyna" - "My new girlfriend"
