Yes. Fish can feel pain. Infections like this, if left untreated, can grow to the body and produce horrible ulcers.

GF can also stand for goldfish.

That is almost certainly fin rot. Just like bettas need water changes to keep their water clean, goldfish need them, too. You really need to do weekly or twice weekly water changes on that tank. The fish aren't going to get any better without them.
