Is this my grass germinating or something else?

Hello, I planted a mixture of fine fescue and KBG 10 days ago and I'm starting to notice some activity. I'm not sure if what I'm seeing is grass or something else that I don't want. It seems like whatever is coming up has 2 leaves sprouting in opposite directions. Is this what grass looks like in its early stages?

Here's a picture. I'll take a better one if anyone needs it. Thanks for your help.

Nope, that's not grass, just weeds.

Sorry, friend. That looks to be a whole lot of something other than grass.

What else are we seeing in that pic? Are those all rocks?

It's PennMulch after it's absorbed some water. It's starting to break down.

I know spring is a rough time to try to establish a lawn, but do I have any hope here? Any recommendations to try to get rid of this stuff while keeping the grass alive?
