Those symptoms are very common in single baby pregnancies, with the exception of the second heart beat, and are also often not present in twin pregnancies.
The second heart beat could be a heart mummer, which is usually harmless and goes away after birth, but your doctor should be aware of it, and the pediatrician should check it during the child's first year. It could also be the monitor picking up your own heart beat. That happens less often with today's technology, but sometimes things are lined up just right and your heart beat carries through the womb strongly enough to be picked up as an extra beat.
I agree with Michelle, at 36 weeks, there would not be room for a second baby, and twins are usually born at or before 36 weeks.
