Hello I'm new at this so please bear with me. I noticed the initials on this 2014 penny looks to be double strike. Can someone help me with this.

If you are referring to VDB initials, note the doubling is flat and incuse, it is very common and is considered Machine Doubling.

It's just Machine Doubling. It could have been a die that was a little loose. It struck the coin and then bounced, leaving a doubled image. It's actually considered damage. Not and error and only worth face value.

I'm not sure what you are asking for the 2018-D. The 1983-D shows some die deterioration and split-plate doubling. That gray color to the SE of the D mintmark is exposed zinc from the copper plating being torn during striking. That's not valuable.

The last pic is utter damage, possibly intentional using a belt sander or grinder. I hope this helps.

The VDB is incuse. So light Machine Doubling will enlarge these devices:

Just MD, not a doubled die. Enlargements of the devices is what we look for on raided devices.
