It's too early to tell, you need to wait until the chick is about 5 weeks old. This article can help explain:

Enjoy the little one, they grow up fast!

Does the chick have "eyeliner"? Do you have a side shot of the head so we can see? I bought my little girl from  a local breeder and her chipmunk stripe down her back was not as defined/dark but she had the eyeliner that the breeder said only the girls have.

I'm no expert, I only have the one. Here is a pic of mine from when she was 3 days old. She is the one on the left. See how there is a mascara/eyeliner appearance around her eyes? I was told that means it's a girl even if the chipmunk stripe is broken or light brown.

Given the lighter color, light stripe and lack of eyeliner, I think you have a boy. Hopefully others with more experience will chime in.
