Hi welcome to fk!
Pets at home seem to be causing issues for a lot of people with their terrible advice... I don't know what they think will happen in 3 days!
I would at least try giving them some grief and demanding they take the fish back to let your tank cycle properly, its hard work up keep fish alive during a cycle..otherwise its lots of testing, water changes, crossed fingers and hope for the best.. Or if you can find a small fish shop local, they are usually more willing to help.
But either way I would advise against using pets at home for livestock.. They don't give the appearance they care when there's so many cases like yours!
Let us know what they say, do at least a 50% change in the mean time, and minimal food for now.
Edit: just noticed its a 24l tank, they shouldn't have sold you those fish either, neither species will be happy in that size tank, that's really only suitable for a shrimp tank...
The filters too aren't really ideal. But we'll worry about saving the fish first..
