small bump into SBD.

my betta started out with a small bump, so i fasted him for 2 days because i can't go out to the store to buy some epsom salt. i changed his water the other day, no poop yet.

then i heard splashing and thumps from his tank while i was sleeping, and saw silver showing and his belly getting bigger. it's not that big, but still. the silver is showing. he's not breathing hard or anything, he's still swimming around trying to glass surf. but not as fast anymore.
my dad promised that we'd go to the store tomorrow.
i'm going on a trip for 4 days starting on friday. how am i suppose to treat him? do i just use the epsom salt and leave him or should i fast him for the 4 days and wait until i come back?
i'm so worried.. it hasn't been long since i got him :/

i see the bump on his body where his poop is, though it hasn't come out yet. he's still swimming like normal, but he's staying on one side of the tank. i tried putting the mirror by him but he doesn't flare.
