Creamsicle Molly rolling over

So im new to all of this but I noticed my creamsicle molly is going to the bottom every now and then and rolling over. Is this normal? I dont know that I have seen a fish roll over before!

I've never seen that. Is it flashing or scratching up against anything? Does it look like it's having a hard time breathing? How long is it staying at the bottom?
We have lost several mollies lately and I am wondering if it's water conditions. I had ours in a freshwater tank with temps btw 78 and 80. But mollies really do best in brackish conditions where the water is salted to a degree and, I believe, a bit cooler.

You may also want to consider your water parameters and check what they are at...

I guess it was just first day in tank. I have been watching closely and he has not done it again.
