Won't hurt you. Just yeast.
You may not like the taste though, some don't.
Usually the proper way to serve homebrew is to gently pour the beer out of the bottle into a glass without upsetting the sediment, and then leave a small swallow size amount in the bottom as that is where all the yeast is. Dump this down the drain.
With practice you can use the shoulder of the bottle to keep the yeast in there and not your glass.
However, some people and some styles just dump it all in! Just makes a yeasty tasting beer that is a little cloudier than otherwise.
Try both ways and see what you prefer!
