Looks like oil based poly with no stain on a pine door to me.
Oil based poly give it a yellow look over time.

Thanks @joecaption. I sanded one side of the door. All the dust and the chemical I used turned red orangish. I am assuming there is come color to. Any colored stain I can use to match this color?

Why not get a stain chart and match it up that way? The bottom pic looks a little like golden oak but the top pic is too red. As Joe stated, oil base poly will deepen the colors naturally in the wood.
