It's the glowing part in a lightbulb, some types of bulbs got 2 filaments such makes them basicly 2 lights in one bulb.
For example an headlight can have a low beam filament with a reflector/shield below it, and the high beam filament, breaklight/taillight can also be just one bulb with 2 difrent filaments.

Mine has 2 in, would they both go? Or just one?

If your high beam works and your dip beam doesn't. Then one filament is broken. A replacement bulb is required.
