    Pullets have larger combs and wattles in this breed. Your Sussex looks like a pullet. I have a speckled sussex pullet with a bigger comb and wattles then your light Sussex. Also, your chick has a long tail, which also indicates female.

    I'm more inclined to say pullet, difficult to be certain without an age.
