I got my essay back after it had been marked and was given a Merit for one grading description and a Distinction for the second one.

There is only two essay in the module so to get an overall distinction for the module do I have to get 2 distinction on the next essay?

Ask your tutor because we won’t know. It depends on your college and their criterion.

It depends on the grading descriptors of your Access course. My brother did an access course and his modules had 4 grade descriptors which were marked for each assessment. To receive a distinction for the assessment overall, he would require at least 2 distinctions and 2 merits over the 4 grade descriptors. If your access course follows a similar pattern but with 2 descriptors, a distinction and merit may be a distinction overall, but this is just guessing. You would need to look at your course handbook or ask your personal tutor/course lead for their specific grade criteria.
