For one thing test strips tend to be somewhat unreliable. Look for a 'master test kit' They'll have ammonia nitrIte and nitrAte dropper tests along with ph. The first three are the most important ones to get. You can buy them separately as well.
How long has the tank been set up and running with fish? did you cycle the tank or just add fish to a new tank?
I've never put salt in my guppy tank. They don't need it. I suggest doing another water change and only adding a good quality dechlorinator (one that removes chlorine and chloramine is good.
Can you describe these patches? color? texture? does it look like her scales or something on top.
Does she not eat at all or is she not fast enough to get to the food? Usually once a fish has stopped eating the chance of recovery is not good.
