Yes, females are pink in the belly. Your kribs are acting exactly like cichlids do; if they deem a mate unsuitable, they will chase it out of its sphere. It is the reason most serious cichlid breeders buy at least six juviniles so the fish pair up naturally.
what should i do and the female top fin is kind of pointed and its not pink at all yet could it be male?

Both males and females can have a pink belly. Males have an elongated dorsal fin that ends in a point. It's had to sex them until they have reached maturity (unless you have had kribs before). This the only pic I have on my computer currently, but you can see the one on top is male and the one under is female.

abbeysmom is right and also females will have circle-like features on their dorsal fin and males don't

Don't go by spots on the dorsal either, both male and females can get them.
