I would say yes she is. "Gravid females are easily distinguished by their bulging mid-body area. The area grows considerably prior to the female releasing the brood. As it grows it acquires a lighter colouration, which is the result of the skin around the area being stretched. This is sometimes referred to as 'developing a lighter spot' and is an indication that the fry are about to be released" Here is more info http://www.mchportal.com/fishkeeping-mainmenu-60/stock-the-inhabitants-mainmenu-79/breeding-hints-and-tips-mainmenu-83/535-keeping-and-breeding-platies-xiphophorus-sp.html

As to when she will give birth, it all depends. It is up to her. Whenever she feels ready. I hope this helps!

I'd give it Few weeks from now but it also depends on the quality of your water as well, you should think about quarantining the fish until it gives birth. I took some plastic screening and wrapped it around the filter intake so that the fry won't get sucked up.
