Unhappy Possible internal parasites?!

Hii! I just got my betta (Mac) on sunday March 1 for my birthday. Everything has been going fine and he's been eating well. His poop was normal until yesterday I noticed a white stringy thing attached to him. Yesterday it fell off and today its been on him for about an hour or more and I'm a little concerned that it's internal parasites. I've been feeding him freeze dried blood worms because he doesn't like the pellets or flakes and I plan on doing 60% water changes at least once a week. I cleaned his tank today and everything was fine. I don't have any money until tuesday to buy medicine, will he last that long? :( And what medicine should I get? Is there any "home remedies" to help him until I get the proper stuff?

Please answer the following questions & we can possibly help better.

Tank Size?
How long has the tank been set up?
Water Temp?
Tank mates; what kind & how many of each?
Brand of food(s), type, how much & how often fed?
Water change schedule?
How much water is changed?
When was the last water change & how much water was changed?
Brand of water conditioner?
Do you add anything other than water conditioner to the water; if so what?
