Default Is my platy sick?

I picked up 6 platys this past weekend and one of them has been acting strange for the past 2 days...

The first few days he was acting fine, schooling with the others and swimming around the tank...the past 2 days he's been very lethargic, hanging out in one corner of the tank towards the top, and under the heater at the bottom of the tank. No social interaction, but eating fine.

Also, his lips have turned white. Not sure if this is ick or not, none of the other fish have these traits. No other white spots that would notify me of ick, so I'm kind of confused/concerned.
