Unhappy Ammonia Levels Don't Go Down?

Well yesterday my ammonia level was 0 and today it just went to about 0.6 or even a bit more. I did a partial water change of 30% and tested the water again and the ammonia level didn't drop!
What should I do?
I'm currently cycling (just started) my 21 gallon tank with 1 betta and 3 red comet platies. There is one platy who just stays at the bottom of the tank sometimes and i think that is a bad sign.

I'm new but I would have to say to do more like a 50% water change. Also when you do, take the water from the bottom of the tank sucking up the poop.
