 Is she okay? Leopard gecko breathing odd. Please help. ASAP!

My girls breathing is concerning me. I’m not sure if it is not normal or I am just watching her too much but her breathing is kind of off. She will breathe in and then out and when she breathes out it is sort of like her lungs fall (that is the best I can describe it) and then she breathes in and out again very fast and it repeats. She eats regularly mainly worms and drinks water, she does go into her moist hide and warm hides, but lately she has been laying in a corner which she uses as her bathroom. There is a red heat light and UVB light, now has heating pad (she had a rock under the heat light to absorb heat before), carpet, and 3 hides. She is in a 10 gal tank and it usually stays around 80f. Is she okay? I’ve noticed she is really dark in color as well if this helps.

Could be a respiratory infection. Can you upload a video of her breathing to YouTube and put the link here? Pictures could also be helpful.
