Bumble bee molly is with fry?

Could someone tell me if my bumble molly is expecting? I see her these past 2 days rubbing herself on gravel and decor, and I have read this is a sign of labor. I got her roughly 2 weeks ago. I have another female balloon molly doing the same as well. I saw her on the gravel yesterday almost panting it seemed, but then again, she could have been sleeping? Her I bought 25 days ago and she has had fry 3 weeks ago. Thoughts? Water parameters are within range.

I can't see the picture but rubbing on things can also be a sign of ich. Any white dots on your fish?

Re:

I hope I uploaded correctly. I see the photo on my end.

I don't believe it's ich, since I don;t see any white dots. I saw ich on fish at the petstore and the dots are quite obvious and fairly large. The ph is around 7.6, but from what I have read, mollies and platys are fine ph over 8. I just thought they are ready to give birth...Would I be able to test for ich?
