Unhappy Please help :( not sure what this is.

Hello,i just noticed today that my female VT is larger looking bloated, and sometimes has to swim spiralling. I havent overfed her or all my other fish would be like this, the water is between 75-80 degrees and its an 8 gal cleaned out 50-75% every week and 100% every 3 weeks.
All help is appreciated, i will try add photos.
