My female guppy has recently become really thin and started hiding behind my thermometer in a odd position. She has stopped interacting with my other guppies except at feeding time. She is still eating normally but not growing at all. She also has slightly clamped fins.

Is she okay or sick?

If she is eating and not gaining any weight, then she probably has internal parasites. You should quarantine her and treat her with something that will kill the parasites. I usually use API general cure, but there are other medications that you can get.

Is that poop sticking out or is that her guts? I only recently saw an image of a guppy with their guts out like that, but my female has huge poop that also looks like that some times.

Definitely a sick girl. From the picture you posted it appears something is coming out of her anus. Is it still there? Might be a sign of parasites
You definitely want to isolate her and test your water to see what could be happening

Also look for discoloration n her scales or around her mouth
and tares (tears?)in her fins
more info would be helpful
