Exclamation Um...Is this Normal?

My female betta Rose that I just recently got, is acting strange. I was conditioning her for breeding a day ago with my male (I didnt put them in the same tank if your thinking that) and now shes just sits at the bottom of the tank as if she has a lot of weight on her. Oh and she slightly tips over. Please i hope shes not dying. She just sits there breathing and when she goes up for air she goes left and right really hard with her body as if she is struggling. What should I do? The pet store is closed and I dont know what to do if she needs medicine. As soon as you read this plz comment at least say something plz plz plz.

Does your tank have a filter?
Does your tank have an air stone or other type of aeration?
Is your tank heated?

How often do you feed your betta fish?


How often do you perform a water change?
