Unhappy My Betta Fish Is Possibly Sick

Hi,

I need some help. I recently got a betta fish for my birthday and over time, he seems to be getting sick.

He rests a lot and sometimes leans against things. He also has a white spot on top and seems to be loosing color. I was thinking it would be fungle infection but I am not sure and this is the first time I owned a betta.

Anyone have any suggestions on what to do?

I do half water changes weekly using PetcoFresh Waterone
