Is my guppy pregnant?

I recently bought 2 guppies from my local pet store. My friend told me that one is female and one is male. The female was bigger than the other guppies in the tank at the store. Attached is a picture of my female guppy. Can anyone help me out? I am pretty sure she is not pregnant t, but i just want o check...
P.S. sorry for the bad quality of the photos... its kind of dark in my room

She will stop eating and star to hide looking for quiet places
Hope it helps

I agree with everyone else, she is a bit small (in body size) IMO. But, what caetano said is right, it's still gonna be a while, though.

The pregnancy duration for guppies is 28 to 40 days(The more younger it is,the more longer it takes.)
