My two turtles, have started 'fanning' each other's face. Is this any reason to be alarmed?

It's either courting or a bit of confrontation. If one of them is a male, you will likely have to separate sooner than later.

They might be biting each other. Their 'neck' extends and then aims its mouth at the limb to bite. I'll try to separate them as soon as possible
