Well she is either pregnant with tons of fry or she is suffering from internal damage. Silver mollys don't always show the gravel spot that indicates pregnancy, but I am worried because she is more bloated towards the front. Just in case, I would get some frozen peas and un thaw them, peel the skin off a pea, grind it to pope, roll it in some of it's normal food, put the molly in a breeder net/ feed the molly the ground pea with food sent. This will do two things, first it will force the fish to eat the pea and two it will allow for a potential fry to survive.

It could be a combination of constipation and pregnancy. It is kind of hard because the aggression is also a sign that she is ready to give birth.
