Unhappy Concerns about my female betta

This would be my first post and I'm not completely sure if it's in the right category but my newest betta is a female veiltail and what got me concerned was a couple of days my friend and I had a concern of what gender her's was since it was a baby still.
Mine had a white egg dot on her underside so I'm sure she's female again but I looked tonight and she had another fin. It's red, like her pelvic fins, but it ends round. I'm worried she has an infection or something.
The picture I took is kinda blurry from the phone and the fact that they assume lights on means feeding time so she went crazy but under her gills there's a red spot and that's what I'm talking about. Her white dot isn't even visible anymore. [IMG][/IMG]

I'm sorry but I can't see anything in the pic. Is it possible your seeing her beard when she flares? Females will flare like a male but the beard is usually smaller. To get a pic you might try cupping her in a clear cup. The ovipositor, the white dot, is less prominent sometimes. How big is her tank? How often are you doing water changes & how big are they? Redness around the gills could indicate an ammonia issue. Have you tested the water for ammonia?

I feel dumb but it's never stuck to them like that D:
