It's very unusual for a healthy fish to get sucked into a filter intake, unless the filter is ridiculously strong (not the case with a Fluval 1 Plus!). I'd suggest that the fish died of another cause and got sucked into the filter afterwards. As long as your other fish look healthy I'd put it down to bad luck and not worry too much - guppies in general aren't as robust as they were ten years ago and a loss of one out of four in a new tank isn't uncommon.
Make sure you're testing the Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate levels of the water regularly and hopefully you can avoid any further losses.
