I have planted all colors of creeping phlox(blue,light pink,dark pink and white),but they almost all have turned blue. Is there a fertilizer I need to use to help get my colors back?

I am not aware of a fertilizer or other soil conditons or treatments that would change the color of creeping phlox, either the Phlox stolonifera or the Phlox subulata. From the colors you named I think you must have the subulata. It may be that the blue was a more vigorous grower and has spread through and over time overwhelmed the other colors. In my own garden this sometimes happens. Here is some general information about it you may find interesting.
