I feel with live bearing fish you should have at least 3 females to 1 male, also it is a good idea to have plenty of places for the females to hide live plants are very good for the females to hide in once the plants take hold, and your fish population will greatly increase, Your female guppy is simply exausted or pregnant.

Is a male guppy sick if it isn't swimming fast unless they're eating and is continually opening and closing their mouth?

Fish, including guppies need to continually open and shut their mouths in order to breath and stay alive. Fish also need to rest and slow down sometimes just like you. You don't give enough information for me to say if the guppy is sick or not but I would guess from what you do say, that it's OK.
