Has my new clown loach got white spot?

Can anyone help please?

We recently brought 2 new clown loaches for our tank (had 2 already). The smallest one is now just sitting on the bottom of the tank, hidden away and is covered in little white spots.

I presume this is white spot? None of our fish have ever had this before. We've put some drops in the tank as instructed. My questions are: is it treatable or is the little loach likely to die and is it contagious to the rest of the fish in the tank?

Thanks in advance for your help....
