Please Help!!!

About 4 days ago I noticed a white sac with something red in the middle protruding from Sweetheart's (my betta fish) belly/anal area. She is normally a very deep purple but she is now pale and white on the bottom of her facial area. I'm desperate and don't know what to do. I don't know if it is poop or if something else is happening to her. Anytime she has tried to eat she always spits it back out. I normally feed her flake food and today I tried a pea.
