Red streaks on my yellow guppy

Yesterday I noticed my male yellow guppy had bright 2 bright on his sides near his back. He's swimming around and eating but I'm still concerned. Its hard to get a picture cuz my camera sucks. Any advice would be great. Thanks. Tested the water after I noticed and levels are good, no ammonia or nitrite, low nitrates ph 7.5

Went to the petstore and saw that all the yellow leopard guppies had the exact same red streaks. I was told they are just juveniles and its nothing to worry about so I feel better. Thanks biokid you were right its just cuz he's a youngling :P ( he's a pig too always right to the top of the tank at feeding time before everyone else )

the red part is near the top, it looks more red because of the flash from the camera. all the yellow guppies have it at the LFS.
