Generally, I think male gouramis have a pointy dorsal fin and females are rounded. But I'm no expert

Males are more slender than females & a bit smaller. Males have a pointed dorsal fin. Females are rounder in body shape & a bit bigger than males & have a rounded off dorsal fin.

That is a female. The males have a longer dorsal fin that comes to a point and the females are more rounded. The females bodies are rounder as well. So congrats it's a girl!
