Sick Female Guppy?

Rate this Entry
Hello, I'm new to this website, I have a question regarding guppies; I recently got a female guppy, in 2days or so~ she gave birth, after a day, the female guppy seemed to have white spots appear on the top of her fin (she used to be pure grey/ black on her body), it seemed to be some-what swollen on the white spot; now I'm worried its sick or might die, I also moved her to a large glass jar for the momment; so the males wont keep bothering her and slamming into her. (I plan to move her to my second tank soon) But right now is there any cure or something I should do?
Oh and she seems to be breathing heavily, her gills are sort of red/ swollen.

In the picture: The white spot is more to the left side, and its a bit swollen on that side, looking from her right side it looks normal, but on the left it looks really bad . Please inform me if there is any cure/ something I should do. Thankyou!!Name:  Poor guppy.JPG
