What do you mean by straight to the top? Are they floating, swimming, what? What size tank and what else is in there?

Guppies do swim at the top level usually. But are they gasping? That can be a sign of bad water or low oxygen.

In some cases fish can gasp because they are in shock over being added to completely different water from what they were in at the fish store.

It depends what the problem was. If it is shock then Guppies are quite hardy... Now they're in there I would just give them time.
