From what I remember guppies get their colouring on their tails (and sexual characteristics) quite gradually.  Its quite fascinating to watch a dot of colour appear and change.

Carl is right, if its albino it should have red eyes, if not it could be Hypomelanistic (reduced black pigament) or Leucistic (like an albino but still has black eyes).

Could either be a Hypo or Leusitic, you can tell this easily, if there any black on the body it could be a hypo as leusitic wont have any black at all.

this is correct but  Hypomelanistic and Leusitic are used when you refer to reptiles mammals and humans
with guppies we use Albino & Blond  and not forgetting the Blau (this dose not show the colour red)
