Fluffy is acting weird... Please help?

Symptoms and Treatment
How has your betta fish's appearance changed? Can't tell, she is being difficult.
How has your betta fish's behavior changed? Laying at the bottom of the tank, panting. Occasional crazy bursts of swimming
When did you start noticing the symptoms? Acting lethargic for a couple days, first started lurking at the bottom of the tank today
Have you started treating your fish? If so, how? Drained some of the water, to make it easier for her to breathe
Does your fish have any history of being ill? nope
How old is your fish (approximately)? I got her last year. Dunno before that


Thank you for your help

Just realized. I didn't specify, but Fluffy is a female betta fish.

Having her in a 1/2 gallon with one weekly 100% change could be part of the issue. In a 1 gallon tank it is recommended that there is 1 50% change and 1 100% change weekly.
I would also make sure the water is warm enough.
