Question question about dalmation mollies

i just got y fish today, i got 2 african dwarf frogs, 5 ghost shrimp, 3 otocinctus, 3 red mickey mouse Platy's, 2 dalmation mollies, and 5 guppies. I have a 75 gal. tank, and i tested the water and i even took some in to get tested.

my question is my 2 dalmation mollies are staying together but there staying at top by the heater? they do swim around the tank but they go right back to the heater. how do you tell if i have a female and shes about to give birth, (i googled why is my dalmation mollystaying by the heater and it told me they do that when they are about to give birth.

any help would be great

Is your tank cycled?
What are your parameters?
It could be possible that your female is getting ready to give birth, many livebearers are gravid when purchased, though knowing your PH, Ammonia, Nitrate and Nitrite levels will help us figure out why they are doing what they are doing.
From my experience, you should only add a few fish to your tank at a time, of it will shock your cycle and cause it to start all over again.
