We have performed $^{75}$As and $^{23}$Na nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) measurements on a single crystal of NaFe$_{0.9835}$Co$_{0.0165}$As and found microscopic coexistence of superconductivity with a two-component spin density wave (SDW). Using $^{23}$Na NMR we measured the spatial distribution of local magnetic fields. The SDW was found to be incommensurate with a major component having magnetic moment ($\sim0.2\,\mu_B$/Fe) and a smaller component with magnetic moment ($\sim0.02\,\mu_B$/Fe). Spin lattice relaxation experiments reveal that this coexistence occurs at a microscopic level.
