is this normal?

I have only had a few fish give birth and so far I have missed all of them. This morning one of my pregnant guppies didn't eat and was just kind of hanging out in the top corner of the tank and everyone was nipping at her anal area, so I put her in the breeder box to keep the other fish away from her. Just now I went in and noticed the back of her looks strange so I took a few pictures. She looks almost reddish/clear I have never seen this happen before.

If she is not eating and they are nipping at her it prolly means she is days away.. she may be letting off hormones that the others are attracted to.. i would say keep her separated for a few days so the bullies Can settle down a bit and maybe she will give birth for ya as well

So I let her out because everyone calmed down but she freaked out and wanted back in, should I let her stay in there?

I say you should let her stay in until she drops her fry. To put her in and out will only stress her and may cause her to abort. Its better to just leave her. Id say put her back in and turn off the lights for a while to help her settle.
