Q.Are white thin worms safe in my soil along with earthworms? I am trying to kill off grubs but see a lot of thin worms too?

I am a new gardener but want to give my plants the best possible start. In the image 4553 you can see all 3 worms I have in my soil. The grubs, I have hopefully killed but I am not sure what the yellowish thinner worms are and whether they will do damage.
Can anyone help?

I would definitely try and remove as many of those grubs, and anything that doesn't look like an earthworm. They can munch on young roots, and do some damage.
