Next step would be to run low light video recordings while they slept. If the marks appeared overnight, review the tape to determine when or how they might have appeared. In other words it's a matter of ruling out mundane causes before jumping to a paranormal one. You just need to build on your investigation step by step until you arrive at the truth. Explore all evidence as you acquire it.
As for equipment, that is hard to say until you actually begin your investigation. I would concentrate on visual though since the marks appear to be the most significant form of evidence in this case. Your presence there may be the trigger which causes a response, so you will need to be ready to document whatever response may be present.

If anything happens, try thinking of a non-paranormal explanation first.
Document everything. And I mean everything. Keep your tape recorder handy at all times. Explain everything that you are doing. Where you are, what your doing, who's nearby, whether you are sitting or standing, etc etc.
If other people will be investigating with you, dont ask "Did you see that?" or "Did you hear that?"
Write down what happens and have them do the same, and then later on compare notes. That's some pretty good validation.
I'm a big fan of unattended equipment. Leave a tape recorder going in a room with supposed activity. Same with a video camera if you have one. By being left unattended, you eliminate the possibility of contamination.
Don't go into it thinking that you just HAVE to find something. Things don't happen all the time. Nobody will fault you if you come away with nothing. I've been fishing for over 30 years, and there's been times when Ive caught nothing, doesn't make me a bad fisherman, sometimes the fish just aren't biting.
Have fun, and try to learn at least one thing. Learn what to do next time, and learn what NOT to do.
Each investigation can help you become a better investigator. If that's the case, you will never come away with nothing.

Also, if you do the investigation, look into what kind of soil the house is sitting on. It can cause sinking or movement depending on the soil, which might account for the "scratching" sounds. I'm not triing to make you mad, but I do think it is a bad idea to investigate of someone you are involved with.

You are using the right equipment though, the 35mm and tape recorder are the best you can use so keep up the good work there!
Remember, it is difficult investigating for someone that you are close to like a girlfriend but not impossible. You just have to remember that even though she is your girlfriend, you have to remain neutral throughout the investigation.
