Hello, and welcome to the forum. Yes, it looks like they're pregnant. I'm sure someone can help, but can you be more specific about what you need help with?

Female livebearers like platies spend more time pregnant than not and they can handle the whole process on their own, so it's nothing to be worried about. Roughly every month or so, they give birth to live fry that are free-swimming and can feed on their own. If you want to increase the survival chances of your babies you can move them to a separate grow-out tank, but you don't have to. Live plants like java moss and hornwort make excellent hiding spots for baby fish as the adults might see them as snacks.

But yeah, just care for the fish as you normally would, the babies don't need anything special, you can crush some flakes to small bits for them if you're worried about feeding them.
