Both appear to be heuristic detections, meaning that they just vaguely look like something that the antivirus engines recognizes as a potential threat. The fact that only two engines detect it should also make it obvious that it's a false-positive. If it was a real threat, more antivirus vendors should have picked it up after almost two months after the file was released.
But you don't need to take our word for it - submit the sample to the antivirus vendors as a false positive, and they will hopefully confirm to you that the file is indeed clean and put it on their whitelist so that it's not detected in the future anymore.
