Do a big water change with temperature matched dechlorinated water. Just in case. Hope it's nothing but check back in if you are still concerned.

Well post a pic when you can and do a big water change as soon as you can. If you don't think you are cycled then yes, it could be ammonia toxicity. It could also be something else. Do you know where to find and fill out the emergency template to answer all the questions people will ask you anyway? If not, I'll post it here for you.

Well it's your call but if you aren't at home what can you do? You know the situation best.

Post an update when you can.
