Those pictures make it hard to tell for sure. If I was to guess from what I see of the fins, I would say a female. The lack of colour around the belly in the first pick has me stumped. The lower pick shows some red/pinkish colouration.
It the tail fin rounded or do you see some elongation at the top and bottom?Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
Please remember; every keystroke has a consequence.

well firstpic was taken the day I got it, it was much more pale as you can see, the second is more recent and he/she got lots more pink coloration. although that pic is more exaggerated than it really is face to face, it still did get alot more pink since the first day I had it
oh and the second pic was also taken at a higher elevation in the tank so the light might be playing a part in the color
and I want to say rounded, it doesn't seem to be long on the tips
