Pass or C

With the recent events I have been struggling in one of my classes. I have a guaranteed C+ currently without taking the final, which I hope will push my grade up as I have averaged B- in my chemistry series. However, I have the option to choose pass/no pass with the necessary threshold of C. I am currently a first year with a 3.35 GPA with hopes of a health school, possibly medical. Would it look better to show I struggled in the class as my 3 other courses are As or would a pass be better to push my GPA up? I am scared that medical schools will be wary of a pass grade, but also of a possible C. Thank you.
