In the second picture, is that a dried out flower I can see? Has the plant been flowering but not setting fruit? The double stem is completely normal. Here is a nice youtube video explaining about pruning. Some people prune deliberately to force a second stem to grow as this means the plant will produce more fruit. A single stemmed plant will produce less fruit but it will be bigger.

******UPDATE*******

The fact that your plant is flowering and not setting fruit points to an issue with pollination. You may need to hand pollinate your plants. Please see this post that I wrote explaining the process for information on how to do this:

I think that your tomato was deficiency of potassium.
(exactly, Nitrogen is too much. :)
And you know where is a little dark. Tomato likes sunlight.
So, you should give tomato Potassium(K) fertilizer and hand pollination.
