I wouldn't milk them until you new for sure they are not bred...if you got them 4-5 months ago you can have anywhere between one month to BABIES ON THE WAY NOW lol...
If you feel on the right side sometimes you can feel baby moving ..the one filling on one side is most likely the PU as a healthy normal udder fill evenly with pregnancy....if you can have blood drawn to test that would be best..with Bio-tracking they will even give her gestation time..

With a PU...especially one filling one sided it is recommended not to milk...sometimes you get the real stuff..other times its watery...if its infected you get bloody milk...once you know for sure they are not bred..I would milk out just a bit to check out the fluid..this way if they are infected, you can treat. ...if all is healthy and well..I would breed them ASAP...to get a real udder with real milk. there are cases where an unbred doe can produce clean fresh milk and plenty of it..but those gals are few and far between ;)

If you take a few rear end pix for us to see what you are seeing we might be able to tell pregnancy and if the two are close to kidding..and we can see the one with only one side of the udder filled... if its just watery milky fluid..and no blood, stringy gunk or anything else that looks like infection..its best to leave it alone and get her bred as soon as you are able..this will help her build a good udder...if you milk her out then you can create a lopsided udder that will alway fill uneven..if you don't want to breed her then just leave it and see if her body wont absorb it..

they are hard to see..but this last one...I would leave it alone....if you want to breed her it would be good to do that soon and get a nice full udder...I cant tell by the pix on the other two...what we need to see is the girly parts and how they look from the rear..to see if they have dropped..a good udder shot would help as well..: )
