Silver Sail Fin Molly sick? on bottom of tank

Hi all,
My molly has started floating 10mm off the bottom of my tank. she doesn't move much and didn't feed last feed.
it started about 5 hours ago. I had a guppy die a day ago doing the same thing.

her head looks a little swolen and redder and scalier than before and she is getting yellow aroung the gills. the redness and her head is really noticable compared to the male.

the tanks 3-4 weeks old and the water qual is great, PH, amminia, nitrates and nitrites fine.

pic if it helps it's a bit blury but you can see the redness and the scales.

any ideas?. is it a desease, contageous? or just 'life'? the rest of my fish (2x dwarf Guarmies, 4x celebes rainbowfish, 1x female guppy and 2 x albino bristle nose, 100lt tank) seem to be going great.

thanks in advance

Perhaps it is chlorine... Get some stress coat in the tank ASAP ( read the dosing instructions for chlorine).
