Are these weeds? What are they?

Hello all,

I'm new to this board and new to gardening. I overhauled a little garden bed and planted some corn seeds amongst other things. Unfortunately, I did not label any of the seeds where I planted them. At any rate, i've been seeing these small plants kind of dotting my garden in large patches. I think they're just weeds in the early stages, but they also look similar to corn seedlings, and being that I didn't label where I put my seeds, I don't want to start yanking them out if they're my growing corn seeds.

If anyone can tell me what they might be and how I can retard their growth or prevent them from popping up, it would be great.

And thanks for sharing all this knowledge!
