Question bearded dragon stopped eating

Hi can anyone give me some advise? I bought 2 14 week old bearded dragons about 2 weeks ago, they were both eating fine and active but about 4 days ago 1 stopped eating and has not shed. She is still going to the toilet but i have noticed blood in her poo.
she is starting to look skinny and dull/dry. she is still active and jumping and running. I have tried removing the other one at meal times who is now alot bigger and eating like a pig as i thought she could be stopping the other one from eating, but smaller one still not interested in eating. The bigger one is doing fine eating/shedding and all temps and lights seem fine, 100 degrees hot side 105 in basking spot and 80 degrees cool side, with 10.00 uvb strip and heat mat. The smaller one also is asleep alot and wanted to hide but i removed the hide as i thought she was not getting enough uvb.

any advise please

If there's blood in the poo and its behaviour's affected then you should take it to see a vet, especially if it's losing weight...

as above; take to the vets, i mean if u started pooing blood surely you'd go to the doctor.

also, just about the heat mat, not really needed for beardies as they are sun worshippers and dont absorb heat underneath them.
