A sign dropsy is when a fish’s belly bloats noticeably and the scales stick out like a pinecone. If you don't see this then it's probably not dropsy.

Your fish could have popeye disease since you said it has a protruding eye. There is no cure for popeye but if the fish is eating and swimming normally then it should be ok.
