Exclamation I think one of my Ghost shrimp is dying??

One of my Ghost shrimp has a reddish-brown mark on both of its sides for about a week, I thought maybe it was because it got attacked by my female betta or other shrimp. But a few minutes ago I saw it just sitting there so I poked it a little with a turkey baster and it didnt even get scared and dart away. I put a piece of food beside it. Should I get a cup and float it or not?

Well looks like its up and moving again, I don't know whats up with it lol!
Does anybody know what that is on its side(BTW its on both sides)?
I know Ghost shrimp die easily, but I would like to keep it alive.
