Default Is my fire bellied newt gravid

I bought 6 fire belly newts 3 days ago, and from the first day I realized that two of the newts (can't identify sex) have a pretty fat belly (right beside the back leg). Also, I see three newts continuously following eachother. Am I having a gravid newt?

I can't tell from the picture but it is possible. Or maybe she is full of eggs that won't get fertilized and will be resorbed.
