as she is a dalmation , it is hard to find a gravid spot, so compare her to a picture of a non pregnant molly, as she is a female, I am almost certain she is pregnant

It looks pregnant to me. Just keep an eye on it and if it starts to look big and round like it's about to burst, then be expecting some fry in the tank soon!
