.dll file stands for Dynamic Link Library. This is the compiled version of the program you write into the programming language.

.pdb stands for Program database - this generally contains information about the debugging and project state and it gets created in the debug folder of the bin directory only when you compile/build your project in the Debug mode.

Hope this helps.
