Is this a fossil?

Whole Rock:


Zoom-In:


I found this in Pennsylvania, specifically in an area that's being used by a bituminous coal service (the actual expedition can be found on my YouTube here:
). From talking with professors, their educated guess is that the rock is ganister, and from the research I've done, it appears so. However, the "pencil ganister" fossil does not look like this. As you can see in the pictures, it's either scratches or possibly a leaf in print. Is it a fossil?

Thank you!
