That sounds like normal behavior to me.

none of my platys have ever done this though
If this one is acting and looking normal in all other ways then it is normal for this particular fish. Some of my mollys occasionally do it. It has never concerned me.

It would be cause for alarm if it started sinking while staying in place but swimming in place to me is just them moving their fins to keep them where they choose to be.
