Yes, that is a "Tilapia".
An Oreochromis species or hybrid. A juvenile this size would not be able to be sexed. Like many cichlids they ALL resemble female at young age.

Oreochromis is a cichlid, common name is tilapia. Do you know where it was caught?

Oreochromis mossambicus for one example is a 14 inch fish.

I actually got it inside feeder fish(guppies) and saw this fish in it. Was so small and decided to put it in breeder box to feed it differently. And about 2 months now and had grew to like 3 and a half inch now.
