It sounds like a bacterial problem to me but I can't tell without examining the plant. Calla lilies like bright indirect light and cool temperatures(60-75) to continue blooming. Overwatering can cause problems. Allow the plant to dry out slightly between watering and then water thoroughly letting the water drain out the bottom of the pot. I hope your plant perks up soon!
