Its not dying quite yet but it will if you don't change a couple things. I'm not sure what your succulent is but because its a succulent, it needs a pot with drainage and soil formulated for cactus and succulents. Succulents need a dry spell between waterings - they do not like water against their roots. Therefore, do not water until the soil is dry. Do not fertilize. Fertilizer is for healthy plants only.

Daisy is right. The discolored leaves on your Sedum are a sure sign of root rot which cannot be cured by fertilizer.

Remove the stones and any loose soil from the surface. Move it to a very sunny and warm location to hasten its drying out. If it does dry out before it dies completely, then water it very lightly so that it dries out again in a week or less.

I see 2 different plants.

The top plant looks like this one:
Sand Rose (Anacampseros rufescens)

The bottom one could be Echeveria, Graptopetalum, Graptosedum, Sedeveria... but does not look like a Sedum.
