Dear student
The first structure given by you is canonical structure whereas the second one is resonance hybrid structure.

Both the structures are same .
Resonance in actual takes place in benzene like this as canonical form.
And therfore the pi bonds chnges with past pace that the structure appears as circle in centre.
The first structure is made only for understanding purpose.
