Does this galaxy have two center bulges?

  • Naragu by Naragu

    Hello together,
    while classifying this galaxy a question came to my mind. The white dot at the right within the galaxy let the galaxy appear to have two center bulges which might speak for two galaxies which merged almost completely already. On the other side the white dot might only be part of the background like the other objects scattered around the galaxy.
    What do you think? Is it part of the galaxy or part of the background shining through?

    It is probably a foreground star
