In liquid medicines, the active ingedient is dissolved in a carrier liquid. The dosage given in milligrams is only the active ingredient, so it is not easy to say. The liquid probably weights about 1 g (1000 mg) per mL. But that is not the right factor.

There should be some indication of strength or dilution on the bottle. It should say how many milligrams of active ingredient are in 1 milliliter of solution. Without that information, there is no way to figure it out.
