Is it normal for their gills to be a little red and breathing a little fast?

She's keeping water circulating and tumbling the eggs.

Is there anything I should do? Do they eat when they hold eggs?

No they don't eat while holding eggs and fry, when she releases her brood she'll start eating again, keep watching her you are witnessing an amazing part of this hobby especially keeping African mouth brooders
