It's Big $3.30, 10 mins blind level regular structure game.

Can I push here, I really need chips. Problem is UTG opened and we get one caller. So I don't think if I shove they both will fold. One might call me probably UTG player. But who knows maybe they both will fold.

Again UTG is known and have some reads on CO player.

Does this hand fit into the 10BB shoving category into 2 players in this situation with so much cheese in the pot (almost 3k shove to win 2k in the middle) and if I win un-contested that's best result or probably get called by one player who I am not sure will show-up with.

I would fold, I doubt you have enough fold equity against the two villains to make this shove profitable.

Here is a similar spot, where I was up against much wider ranges than you might expect to see with a UTG open and a CO cold-caller:
