    She doesn't have as much blue on the cheeks as most females, but I believe you are correct about it being a female. Perhaps she will get more color with age.

    It looks like a male. There would be more spots all the way down the chin...

    A young female might not have a full "beard" yet, it could still be developing. It still has more blue than any male that I've seen.
