Sorry but what is "TS"?

After bottling and conditioning, there is usually some sediment in the bottles, yeast among other things. Some people drink it, in you case i would not. You can get a lot of this out by doing a secondary or longer primary fermentation.

If you pour carefully you can avoid this getting into your glass.

Table Spoon

so this sediment is somewhat normal like it looked like to me that some of the sugar didn't dissolve ...i used hot water and sturred for a while

im guessing it will be really weak beer

The sediment is most likely yeast settling at the bottom of the bottle. It won't hurt you, pretty high in vitamin B actually. You'll get used to when to stop pouring to avoid getting it in the glass.

The sediment is normal. It's yeast settling out of suspension. Unless you keg or filter you'll always get a little sediment in the bottom of the bottle. I drink it anyways because it prevents the hangover and bugs the SWMBO with the beerfarts!

Hey! Watch where you're bumping! you almost hit me! :P

You just started this beer on Sunday? If so you were a little quick and should have let it sit longer. You have to learn how to siphon off above the yeast and trub sediment as that helps get a clearer beer. Also I would recommend that next time you boil up some water and priming sugar,let it cool and add it to the bottling bucket. Siphon your beer into the bucket and bottle away.

Most people here (myself included) are going to recomend 3 weeks, not 3 days to ferment.

I would definately put those bottles in a safe place that you don't mind getting a little messy. And with that much sugar used for each bottle to prime, you are gonna be lucky if any of these brews make it. Bottle Bomb Time!!!
