Those might be snail eggs. Female RCS carry eggs on their swimmerets (small fins on underside of tail segments) until they hatch.

Are there any fish or snails in the tank?

With these types of shrimp you will first notice what's called a saddle. This is a red rili, just a color variation of RCS. The yellow cluster in the middle of the body is the saddle:



Not long after you should see the eggs under their tail. They're usually yellow but can also be green:





New moms often drop their first batch of eggs, that's normal. Keeping the tank stable is important. New shrimplets are very tiny and usually lack color.

Congrats on the shrimp!
