"White" stripe on Shrimp

I have had my shrimp for about 4 months now, just recently all my females were pregnant and I noticed one of my adult Shrimp had this newly formed white strip from head to tail. It wasnt there before then all of a sudden it was there. I am new to the hobby, is this a sickness, disease, molting, or something that possibly happened after giving birth? I actually dont know if it's a male or female? Has anyone seen this or know what's going on? Thank you, in advance. Orange Pumpkin shrimp Neocaridina genus. Pics included.

Nah that's totally normal. LR Bretz actually selected for that trait in his yellow line and got some really cool looking shrimp from it apparently.
