It will probably be easier for you to tell because those picture are so blurry. This is a good diagram of how to tell the difference between male and female livebearers.

MALE


FEMALE

If the females were in tanks with males, then they are pregnant. I'm 99% sure of this. The neat/crappy thing is they can store sperm, so one coupling can produce multiple broads of young. Just think of them as free food for your betta.

If you have multiple bettas or have a betta in another tank feeding guppy babies is a good treat! It will also help keep you from having so many guppies.

If you mean the guppy in the very first pic, that is a male for sure. Usually, although not always, female guppies are very plain with gray or clear bodies and colored fins. My guess is you have al males but examine them very closely. The differences in male and female guppies are pretty easy to spot once you know what to look for, according to Izzy's diagram.
