Ok so today when I went to feed my platys I saw one of them dead and a large hole in his belly but I think the hole is from the ghost shrimp but the day before I noticed something the same platy was fat/blooted so much that it's scales were sticking out like spikes and I noticed little brown worms on the glass I need help pls

The fat sticking out spikes is dropsys and it's fatal :(
If your fish are dying and one has dropsys your water stats are probably off! Have you tested your water for ammonia, nitrites & nitrates lately? :)
