Can I double the number of components for a PCB while having a single schematic in Altium Designer? I want to make a two same circuit on the same board.

Or should I recreate the same schematic to double the number of component for PCB?

You can use the "embedded board array" feature to put several copies of a design on a pcb.

This is useful for panelization. The copies will be exact copies, and if the original PCB is modified, the copies will inherit the modifications.

As well as the accepted answer, you can copy/paste (and re-annotate) all the components, or you can use rooms and a hierarchical schematic to repeat a given sub-circuit multiple times. You can layout one room and then copy the layout to the second with a couple clicks, then arrange any interconnections that might be necessary and/or move the rooms around on the PCB.
