How to tell the difference?
A demand letter
Should take the form a regular letter. It should be addressed to someone (Dear [Your Name]) and should have a salutation (Sincerely, Kind Regards [Other Name]). Demand letters can take a variety of forms so yours may not look exactly like the example.
A complaint letter
Should have a "CIVIL ACTION NO" near the top and should be formatted like the picture shown. Complaints should all look very similar. If your document looks very different from this picture then you probably have a demand letter.
