I'm not an expert but it looks like they are both females since they have a pink belly. And it also looks like both thier black spots have shiny scales which I think means females as well

Also might get better and more answers by posting this in the "Fish" section.

I think the first one is a female - It has has the blue specs in the black spot on it's side. The males are completely dark from what I understand. I just picked up two GBR myself and I'm not sure either yet. =D

Here is a youtube video I found really helpful.
