It's very hard to tell exactly what's wrong without seeing a picture. However, I would say that it's unlikely that the fish is gravid (pregnant) because most gouramis sold in stores are males.

Also, what are your water parameters? (temperature, pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate). The root of many problems with fish is poor water quality, so knowing these values is very helpful.

Actually not true. Depends on what type of gourami. If it's a dwarf possibly yes (although I have seen female dwarfs at my lfs).

Oonagi, what type of gourami is it? Also, as batman stated, please post your water parameters. And a pic would be worth a thousand words.
