He's proabably going "What the heck are you??" I'm sure your betta will be just fine.

Corys are not aggressive fish, atleast not from my knowledge, also corys are bottom feeders which means they siphon/suck rather than nip. I'm gonna assume that your new to fish (don't punish me if im wrong) and your just being a little overprotective I was too and still am so Im gonna guess that your cory just got a little to close to your betta, trust me you have nothing to worry about
