I think ur talking about Anacharis. The bud is a good thing... it means its growing. Its not a flower. I always break the stem above the bud and replant it... As for leaves turning grey... it could mean its not getting enough nutriants/ Light/ Co2. But i find Anacharis is generally pretty hardy when it comes to tank conditions.

Do u use fertilizer..?
