Marlin 55s

Guys I have a dumb question I have a Marlin 55s with a walnut stock,leather sling,2 shot clip, bolt action. How do I know if this is the Goose gun,slug gun,or shotgun. I have done some research and I still can't tell. It also has a gold trigger with iron sights. Any help would be appreciated
