Hello Annie and welcome to the forum. I think this is 2 fossils (part of), But I would need to know exactly where it was found and a bit about the situation, i.e. was it from a footpath, stream etc.
At a quick look, the 2 discs look like 'ossicles' of a marine animal called a Crinoid, and I think the larger part may be part of a coral.

Assuming it is eroded out of the bedrock - Carboniferous 320+ million years old.
