Question about English (UK)

Past // She: "I was sick."

Now //

(1) Me: She said she was sick.

(2) Me: She said she had been sick.

Which one is correct? or how can I properly express that?

I'm confused because (1) seems to mean that she said "I am sick." at the time I heard her word and (2) seems she said "I've been sick" at the time I heard. Please help me, thanks!
