Yeah, she's pregnant. Most female guppies are when you buy them, they can store sperm for around six months and have multiple batches (ie roughly once a month) from a single male.

Sheís still very small and almost appears to be a juvenile, also her stomach is not large at all. Can we be sure sheís pregnant? Could the spot be dark for any other reason?

They can get pregnant at 2-3 months old, although the batches may be small. The picture is a little blurry, but unless it has a gonopodium and is starting to color up, then it's a gravid spot.
