In brief: Yes, they are all

blood sample tests, though C-peptide is also checked via 24 hour urine collection.
Pregnancy & stage in pregnancy affect physiology & results will likely be somewhat different when not pregnant. Non pregnant results more relevant for long term health. None definitively diagnose PCOS as due to insulin resistance, yet a strong association has long been observed. http://goo.gl/ubDC9h.
