My auto has been flowering for about a week, and roots are starting to come out from undearneath the soil. She is in a ~2.7 gallon pot, should i just cover the roots with soil or is a transplant necessary?

Necessary? No.
Would repotting enable faster root growth? Yes.

You probably flushed the top layer away with your watering
would ad a bit more soil to cover them up so they keep working.

i haven't seen too many autoflowers that will occupy much more than a 3g pot. a couple years ago a friend put an auto in a 45g pot and it was really funny looking next to the 12' tall trainwreck that was put in the 45 next to it. more than 2p out of the TW, less than 2z out of the auto, so you'd have to guess that the auto was using less than 1/16 of what was available in 45g of soil. 45g/16 = 2.8g
so i think that you'd probably be best of not disturbing that plant. like >>145982 said that plant might not need to grow much more rootwise. during flowering and senescence the plant is putting everything it can into growing reproductive material.
