Default Gelcoat or paint?

Hi Everyone
Being new to boating I messed up my hull quite a bit. I was beaching like many others but wasn't aware of how much I scratched up my hull. Lesson learned! I will get a keel guard now but would like to fix the damage first.
Can anyone give advise for this Yamaha boat? Do I need to apply a gelcoat? Or is this just paint that came off? It loks like under the black its white and the dark brownish.
I'd appreciate any help.

You have to post ten times before you can post a picture. Good luck with the scratches. There are enough experienced boaters on here, someone should know without the pics.😂

Likely gelcoat, especially if you see grooves/scratches - but yes pics would be more helpful.
