So, I just got a request for my manuscript (woot!), and in the email, the agent asked for an author bio in a separate Word document. I'm not sure what I should include for this - I've never been published, and it's a YA novel, so I don't know what, if any, personal information would be relevant for that. Any advice is appreciated. :D

Google 'professional bio' that's what my agent wanted when she needed something to package together for publisher submissions.

Have a look at some bios on some YA books and see what they are including. It's not really all that hard and you won't have much to write as you have no past publications to mention. As for the professional one, they are mainly looking for hooks to hang thier publicity on - interesting things about you which may be relevant to the book.
