To be sure that it is male or female, check its bottom side. If there is a egg spot there, it's a girl.
I would give it a few days on the food. They might not want to eat because they are adjusting to the new surroundings.

It looks like you have a female. She's very pretty! Yeah, bettas sometimes won't eat for the first few days after bringing them home. Also, they can be picky eaters and might not like the brand of pellets you are feeding them. Give it some time and keep offering her the food you have. She'll eat when she's good and hungry and after she settles into her new home.
