Pregnant fish?

Hi this is my first time posting on here. I have a few questions since im new to the whole fish tank world. I have 3 fish and well they all seem to have big bellies or at least to me. I am wondering if they are all females and pregnant. And im also wondering why my white fish is always "being mean" and running into the other fish especially at feeding time. Any thoughts?

First, I can only confirm one fish is female, the one pointing upward on the right. You need to get a better photo of the anal fin area. The white fish is a molly while the other two are paltys. It could be a male and that is why it is behaving like that. They will interbreed. Get some better photos and I'll try to confirm for you.

Alo, how big is the tank? That could be part of the problem.
