Greyhounds, and most short smooth coated sight hounds, you'll be able to see the ribs, faintly, under the coat when they are at the correct weight.
Your dog looks to be slightly underweight, but it's really hard to judge from those pictures. To get a better idea I'd need a top line picture when she is standing, and a picture from the side when she's standing.
When a dog is at proper weight they should have a visible waist when they are standing and the person is viewing them from above. When viewed from the side the belly should tuck up. When a person runs his hands over the dogs side they should be able to faintly feel the ribs and backbone. To get an idea how it should feel make a fist and run your other hand over it.
