Season 1 of the anime had its end in September 2017. During its airing, the anime developed quite a popularity.

Even the representatives from the anime studio, Naz, and the mangaka have remained tight-lipped regarding the matter as well. If we are to look at the ending of season 1, the anime stalls the story at a place that seems to have concluded at the same time has a cliffhanger. Considering, the answers for the cliffhanger weren’t given out in the OVA released later, there still seems to be room for a Season 2.
About the Manga
At the time of production of Season 1, My First Girlfriend is a Gal had 5 manga volumes. Considering that the anime is an adaptation of the manga, the studio nearly exhausted the manga chapters up till then. So, it is understandable that studio NAZ didn’t have any plans for Season 2 at the time of Season 1. But, after its release in 2017, the past years have seen the manga have seven more volumes come out. Therefore, the issue regarding insufficient source material for the anime has been resolved. The 12th manga volume came out on 26th January 2021. This seems to be a good sign that if the studio were to plan for a Season 2, there is more than enough content being produced for the same.
