Question Is there something wrong or is she a marble?

My betta's head recently turned from black to iridescent blue... I don't know if there is something wrong or if she's just marbling. What are your opinions?

Just a few days ago...

Today...

Can you fill out the form in the sticky at the top of the Betta Fish Emergencies and Diseases page? It says something like, "Please Answer as Many of These As possible".
