I just got home and I went to see my fish and there’s this poop that looks like a worm, so is this normal? My betta currently has Fin rot but I’m treating him with Melafix right now, also my levels are 0,0,5 ppm! (He’s in a 10 gallon alone too!)

Sorry, I don't know about the poop but you should definitely stop using Melafix with a betta. It is extremely dangerous for them because it can cover their labyrinth organ. Finrot will get better with clean water and if it is major, there are safe medication like Methylene Blue.

Okay! Because of all the warnings I’ve been monitoring my betta and he’s been fine! He’s still eating all the food I give him and he still begs for more! For the clean water part how often would I have to change his water so I don’t have to use medication?

Yeah, don't medicate unless you absolutely must, especially with bettas. 25% water changes every few days or so until healing is finished and then you can go to once a week.
