I understand this is goldfish forum, but I am sure there are a lot of experts knowledgable about minnows.

I got this rosy red minnow oever 1 inch long from the store last day, and it got a huuuuge belly, it does seem to me that it is pregant.

Now I heard that minnows lay their egges but dont get pregnant? I also thought maybe it got disease? but from its sympotoms, it is very agile, and healthy.

So I guess they do get pregnant? How long does it take to lay eggs? it's been 4 days already.

Actually they are egglayers. The female becomes gravid, she will have a slightly rounder belly. If there is no male then she will just release the unfertilized eggs when the right time comes. :)
