Hello and welcome to the forum. Firstly, please use a scale  (a ruler is best) in all photos which should be from as many angles as possible. Secondly, we are not mindreaders, and I have no idea what you think these are and finally as much information as possible about the type of rock and where it was found.

OK.
More photos attached for scale.
I think they look like footprints.
Was found on a triassic stretch of the cumbrian coast in the uk called parton Bay.
I have no idea what type of rock it is (as I'm still new to this), but after some quick research my best guess would be sedimentary. More pictures of the rock added for reference. 20200719_115216.jpg  20200719_115207.jpg  20200719_115155.jpg  20200719_115146.jpg  20200719_115137.jpg  20200719_115129.jpg

Looks like a lump of sandstone that had an iron rich layer (you can see the darker stained sandstone where it used to be). This layer has been eroded away to leave two patches that resemble duck footprints.......
