I would suspect "mushy chick disease" or omphalitis... It's an infection of the yolk sac. I applaud your want to help, but I'm unsure what can be done.

How old is this chick?

Then I would leave her be.

If she appears to be comfortable, mobile, and has an appetite and a thirst, perhaps she just needs some time.

Do you have any idea what breed she is? She kinda looks like a CornishX.

The way she is tucked up is worrisome. some hemorrhoid cream in and around her vent might ease the inflammation. Can you take her to a vet?
