This may be a yellow sac spider. It is difficult to known for sure as the photos do not have a reference to the size of it. Most Minnesota spiders found inside are not harmful.

I have a better picture of this spider. I'm finding them all over the place this pic is from today hope this will be able to tell what kind it is and are they harmful in any way

As mentioned previously, this could be a yellow sac spider or common house spider. While these are not harmful If the numbers in your home are concerning I would recommend contacting a local exterminator for a consultation. https://uwm.edu/field-station/common-house-spider/
