In general, your transplanted hairs and scabs will fall out few weeks after a hair transplant surgery.  What you see may be normal.  It is always a good idea to follow up with your doctor

Congratulations on your transplant. Everything appears to be progressing as expected. If you are not sure about the normal progress of your transplant, be sure to ask your hair transplant team. 

In general, transplanted hairs fall out between weeks 2-5 and come
back up at week 10-17. 

Transplanted hairs must fall out before producing a brand new hair.

This is completely normal and I would expect that most of these transplanted grafts with hairs will be shed in the first 4 or so weeks.
