it looks to be a female with the white nostrills.
Budgies become sexually mature at 3 or 4 months of age but the ideal budgie breeding age is 12 months. You should not breed budgies until the male and female are at least 12 months of age.

her cere will look like the below when she is sexually mature

oh yes not sure what that stuff is on its beak..if you have more than 1 budgie put her in isolation (out of the same room on her own) incase it is contagious until you know what it is.

There is evidence or malehood (bluing cere) and femalehood(white rings around the nostrils).
Mutations can make it tricky. There are much better people than myself around here, so just hang in there, you'll get as good an answer as you'll find.
