You may have bought them already prepared. If not, remove the beak and clean out the insides. If there's no beak and nothing inside the body, then they were cleaned for you.

If you caught them yourself, then I guess you have to clean them. Usually when you buy them at the fish counter or if they are frozen, they have already been cleaned.
