Yes, do you have any new live plants? They could have been on the plant. Many pet store put snails in with their plants and accidentally give them away.

Get rid of them asap IMO. They will probably multiply like crazy. Next thing you know, you will have 50! O.o

Snails aren't really a big deal unless your tank is small. if you've got stem plants then I doubt the extra bioload will be much of a problem. =] plus you may grow to like them! =]

What kind are they? :D Ramshorn or pond? :3
