When we were submitting our documents, the form I- 485 two copy was submitted. One (I-485) for myself and another(I-485) for my wife with the I-130, the form, the form I-130 and I-485 for my wife and I were received and confirmation letters sent to us both. The form I-485 prepared for my wife was rejected n resend to us, but our case is still active. We went through the letter of rejection then we realized only one form of I-485 should have been sent by us, just for me since my wife does not need it. 

We wanted to know if that is an issue?

If your wife is a US permanent resident or citizen, then you did not need to complete an I-485 for her, since only you are adjusting status. She should have completed the I-130, petitioning to have you in the US, and you should have completed the I-130A, as the beneficiary of her petition. They probably only sent back the second I-485 as it was not necessary. ETA: I wouldn't be concerned about this; it seems you've submitted the correct things otherwise.
