Um, I *think* that this reddish spot is actually the fish poop. I've just noticed in my guppies that they get a brownish reddish spot there sometimes, a while after they've been fed, and after they poop it goes away. (Ok, this may have been too much information). The thing you're looking for is a black spot, and you'll know she's ready to give birth when she "squares out"- it's usually pretty hard to miss, the part of her stomach where the gravid spot is kinda sticks out and her bottom half looks squarish.
