It is hard to tell from just pics so we can't be positive but the breeder may have not been experienced or they may have been very young. The female probably isn't pregnant as they do still look to be quite young but you need to watch them for about 21 days and if no pups arrive then she wasn't. Try and not worry as if she is she will take care of pups and we can guide you on their care.

Don't panic, it's not too much trouble to care for an extra hamster in a separate cage just as long as you have the space. You would have pretty much had to buy two of everything anyway even if they lived together. You just have to purchase another cage which of course is a pain, but again you would have likely had to do that anyway as fights commonly break out between pairs and they need to be separated anyway. At least now you don't have to worry about that happening. If you need any guidance on suitable cages or how to look after them just ask.

Maybe she could do a recheck now they are a bit older? Have you seen any mating behavior with the pair? Like one jumping on the others back? At around 4 months when their hormones kick any many pairs will start to fight anyway so it's best to have a cage on the ready to separate.

Second pic looks to be definitely a male. I'd separate for peace of mind. They will be just fine alone honestly. That is not a very responsible breeder and the attitude sounds as if she perhaps is aware she may have got it wrong! I'm glad they have you to look after them now.
