Left me on read but watching my WhatsApp status regularly. What can this be?

Shybtw

So he is my coworker and from the day he got my number he used to message me on WhatsApp and after few messages he lefts me on read but after few hours or a day he replies back and used to flirt a little bit. But day before yesterday he messaged me and I replied and he left me on read and its been almost 2 days he has not replied. He is seeing my WhatsApp status but not messaging me. Can it be because of the last conversation? ( Basically he told me he is very sad and all and I said you should take out a solution for it, he replied will you not help me and I replied back " and how can I help you". ) This was the last message and he left me on read. What can be the meaning of this. Left me on read but seeing my WhatsApp status as soon as I put them. Because I now somehow feel towards him. So what should I do. Should I just take a step back from my feelings. Is he just ignoring me now or what?

Backstory:started with normal chats like hi, how are you etc. One day I went for a movie he saw my status and messaged that he also wanted to see that movie and I should have told him and asked with whom I went girl or a boy. daybeforeyesterday he gave sad reply, I asked what happened he said he is thinking about something and I said you should take out a solution of it. Will you not help me, he said, I replied and what can I do to help you and now I am left on read and he sees my status though.
