I cracked open two eggs this morning and they both had these small seedline objects in them. What would these be?

Those are called meat spots. Maybe from a small piece of the oviduct that got included in the egg.
These are pretty common and edible. In the egg production industry, all eggs are candled, and ones with this type of inclusion are rejected for sale to general consumers. That's why you rarely see them. Those eggs are not wasted, however, but sold for use in large scale bakeries.
