Is this a super nova?

It could be anything eg a foreground object.  First step would be to compare it with archive images though it might be tough to find ones deep enough.  Is there a fits version of the image with coordinates (WCS) so we know where exactly it is ?

This is the possible supernova they claim to have found comparing with archival Hubble images



but at mag 25 in the IR it is unlikely anyone will get a spectrum to confirm it
