I can't exactly tell from the pictures what gender they are. Someone else may be able to help you with that, or you can put the hamsters, one at a time, in a glass bottomed container and snap a few pictures of their underside so we could get a better look.

I'd like to point out something- you said you got your hamsters back in January of last year, so they are over 1.5 years old, correct? I'm not an expert on breeding however the female is a bit old to be breeding. If I remember correctly dwarf females shouldn't be bred after they are 1 1/2 years of age. Again, I'm not an expert on this topic so a professional breeder will probably be able to help you out.

I can't tell from those pics either I'm afraid however if they have been together that time and no babies you can assume they are both the same sex I think!
You should be able to feel the testicles in males or even see them. Only females have nipple lines. Males usually have a prominent more stained scent gland on the tummy

Above her female parts there is no hair there, I think the 1st pic shows it the most. But when hammys get older they can get some hair loss. I'm not experienced to say for sure

You said you got them at a female Pet-Co? Read that but it's not there anymore?
