Fin rot?

So I have a marble betta and he turned from white to blue but about a month ago I noticed that he was getting a red spot on his dorsal fin. I originally though he might just be changing color again but it hasn't moved from that spot and his fin looks as if its wilting. Is it possible for fin rot to start in the middle of a fin or is the problem something else? He's in a 5.5 gallon tank with live plants and I do a 50% water change every one to two weeks.

A picture would help, but it sounds like its likely just colour

To me it looks like he's just changing colors. I would just keep an eye on him to see if any fin decay happens
