Yep. That's the yeast that carbonates your root beer.
BTW...if there is already sediment, the bottles are likely very hard to squeeze. If so, put them in the fridge NOW. Otherwise, one of two bad things will happen. One, you'll get over-carbonated alcoholic root beer (as good as this sounds, it doesn't taste very good when it comes from the standard process of making root beer), or two, your bottles will explode.
