They DO look like eggs with the translucent shiny white appearance, but my first response on seeing them was that they look like fungal growth. Looking at the zoomed photo, it's hard to reconcile the insect egg-like appearance, but the planting medium looks woody and moist, so I still think fungus is very likely -- In which case they will either grow some more in the next 24 hours or/and die, and are harmless.
If too nervous to leave them alone, I would just scoop that part out with a spoon or something.
