The mariner speaks of having a doppelganger, though he means it figuratively, in the following lines:
Like one, that on a lonesome road,
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head,
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread.
He feels haunted by a curse, something evil that is always on his back. But because he caused his own curse by killing the albatross, the unfortunate figure is himself. It's a classic doppelganger, a version of oneself that represents the darkness. In this case, that other side haunts the mariner.
