Question Baby betta is losing their color

So about a month and a half ago, I bought a baby betta. She's (pretty sure it's a girl now instead of a boy) been doing pretty well except her coloring has faded. Top photo is from about four weeks ago, then bottom photo is from today. The water temp is fine and is usually between 75 and 77 degrees, she's been eating and is very active, ph level is good, and I change the water every 3 days. I have no idea what's going on.

Her color could just be changing into her adult one.

She used to be a bright red, now she's kinda pinkish with clear fins. I don't really know if that's normal since this is the first baby fish I've taking care of.

Yeah, I have mini pellets for her to eat and feed her three, three times a day. And she gobbles everything up as soon as the food's in the water.

If she is off her food, that would have worried me. Betta's never refuse food

No she eats just fine, and eats all the food I put into her tank. She's acting normal except for her color is fading. I dunno though, when I got her, she was white-ish and kinda transparent. Though that could be because she was super tiny.

Alright, I'm just a little worried though since she went from bright red to almost no color :/
