Running app gives 2 app icons in Android Studio

Issue

I am running an app in Android Studio and it gives 2 app icons in Androi Studio.

Also, I have moved from Eclipse to Android Studio and now I’m having trouble with how to make the color of logcat same as in Eclipse.

My question is that there are 2 app icons when I run the app, and when I uninstall it, 2 of them have been removed. Is that normal in Android Studio?
I have found that Android Studio can copy keys from Eclipse.

        </receiver>


    </application>

</manifest>

I though this is normal in android studio. Running an app gives 2 launcher icons.
PS:

my AndroidManifest.xml is inside main folder and I used eclipse to export to gradle build.

Im using Android Studio 0.8.6
thanks.

Solution

I got it! yes at last , i have to study gradles and stuff.

Actually I have 2 android projects inside the Project, one is a library and the other one is the main app.

I found out that when i imported those projects Android Studio (I exported the lib to gradle build from eclipse) doesn’t care if that is a lib project or a main project. (Correct me if im wrong ).

so the only thing to make it work is to remove the intent-filter of that lib-android-project.

EDIT:
@all
solved it ! thanks to everyone, I never knew there was another AndroidManifest.xml , i thought eclipse removed it. and i thought Exporting it to gradle will remove it because it is checked as a library.

thanks for all your help.
