It can be either.

If the ball is hit into the air and is in foul territory at any time, it counts as a foul ball if it goes into the stands.

If the ball is in the air and is in fair territory when it goes into the stands, it's a home run.

If the ball is in fair territory and hits the ground, then bounces into the stands in fair territory, it's a ground rule double.

If the ball bounces in fair territory but then bounces into the stands in foul territory past the infield, it's also a ground rule double.

If the ball bounces in fair territory, but then bounces into the stands before it passes 1st or 3rd base, it's a foul ball.
