Weird interview situation?

So I applied to a B.B. in their diversity recruitment program and had to preference my SA roles, I recently received an email from HR setting up a phone interview for my first choice role and then received another request to phone interview for my second choice role and it's in another office. I'm not sure the tape involved around and would hate to be dinged for this, but any guidance would be great. Obviously my first choice would be ideal, but an opportunity with my second choice role is also something I would also be excited in having a career in.

There is a right time to announce that someone else is interested in you. It means you are in demand and possibly valued. Play this card carefully; it is a good situation to be in and just be open and honest.

Thank you for the advice I'll keep in mind across banks, but I meant that the same bank offered me two phone interviews - for ER in one office, and one for S&T in their other office, and I believe this is because the diversity app asked to rank the roles 1-3. HR reached out to schedule one, and an analyst reached out to schedule the other. Is there a ding waiting to happen? I did not specifically apply for either of the roles through a different application either.
