White balloon molly dying?

Basically, I bought a 10 galleon aquarium and set it up at the right temperature and with the filter going for about a week before buying my new fish. I bought 1 black, 1 orange and one white balloon molly. For the first two days everything was fine, they were swimming around eating etc. Then today i looked in my tank to find the white molly lying on her side at the bottom of the tank with 10-12 babies lying in the gravel. I looked online and advice told me to turn the light off.The black molly is floating down in the bottom corner under the heater, appearing to be 'chilling' and the orange molly is swimming around fine and eating. The next thing I know the white molly keeps making erratic dives up and down and is now lying motionless on her side at the bottom of the tank. The orange one has now joined the black one 'chilling at the bottom'. I really don't know what to do. Are they all pregnant? Is the white molly dead, or just recovering? PLEASE HELP!?
