Welcome to the forum, unfortunately I have no idea what sex your lil tiel is. Hen tiels talk too, it all depends on how much time you spend talking to them and interacting. Since you've only had your lil beauty for a week you have some more time to put in to make your bird happy and adjusted to their new home and environment.

In time this bird will sing and talk and won't shut up and you will be more interested in how to calm the bird down then worry about the sex. LOL

singing is mostly a male trait & if he is a pearl you will know in the next molt or two as he will loose those pretty pearlies!
