You might be able to. If it's just a bunch of numbers for the pixel values then you don't necessarily know unless the image header told you. But if you display it and it doesn't look "right" - like it looks like a sharp, in-focus image but just has funky colors like a negative or something - then you can try to convert it from the other colorspaces to RGB, like with ycbcr2rgb() or hsv2rgb(), and see which function seems to give the best RGB image.
