    When I dried my bedding the other day in the lint trap there was these things that look like sesame seeds ??? Where they bedbugs eggs or something else (I forgot to check the trap before I used the dryer).

    BB eggs are very tiny, about 1mm long. Usually, they are stuck to the surface they are on. "Sesame seed" is too big for a BB egg. I've seen BB/nymphs in lint traps and they can be roughly sesame seed size/shape, but they also have BB features (head, appendages, etc.).

    Could be sesame seeds. Cilecto described the eggs for you.
