Need help on guppy breeding

So I just got two female guppies, look so dull compared to the male. Anyway I dont know what I'm doing, I have a ten gallon tank half of it is used by a betta (planning to give it to my friend). Anyway I have two female guppies and one male. Not sure if I picked up a pregnant one from petsmart. Please give me tips here's a picture of the guppy

Some stores do, most don't. Chances are good it was pregnant when you bought it. Regardless, if you bought both and females and placed them in the same tank, then they soon will be.

As all the replies said, they are nearly always pregnant when you get them. There's not a lot you really need to do, just wait...

1. feed them daily
2. make sure the water quality is fine
3. read a book or something
4. wait

there's nothing "to do" with guppies. Just be patient. You will have more than enough guppy fry in no time.
