My white female betta is showing pink streaks in her tail and a white patch on her belly. This has all developed over the last two weeks. Ammonia and nitrite have been 0 and nitrate is around 5. The tank was cycled before she was put in so she’s never been under stress from ammonia and I use Stress Coat to dechlorinate. Is this indicative of an issue or could it be innocent color changing? I’ve had her for about four months now.

If the stress coat you're using contains aloe vera, I'd ditch it and use a different dechlorinator. Something like prime, for example, is well recommended. As for the change of colour, I belive it is an innocent colour change and nothing to worry about. It's when the colour drains out of a fish that is more worrying :)

There’s a white patch on her underside that has been there for about a month now. It’s flat, but I’m not sure what it is

If you could try and get a good picture of it I'm sure there's a member here who could identify it
