I have a chinchilla names millow she about 4to6 months old and a day ago was sleeping when I went to go check on her and on ear was completely red. She is a light gray color and her ears are a pink like gray but this ear was red with vain but after she started running around her cage and moving it went back to normal color. She did recently have some dry feet but there no longer cracked. Should I be worried

This is perfectly normal. Chins often sleep with ears back against the head and they become warm and red as they absorb body heat.

Yeah, looks like a hetero beige chinchilla. Same kind that I have but yeah it's normal heh. I noticed that with my Miki before and it's nothing to worry about. Usually always goes back to normal after some time anyway.

Swee Swee does that too. If she were lethargic or stopped eating I'd worry. But she eats fine and is running around behaving normally.
