Use the jpegs in InDesign (as already mentioned), check your exported pdf for lines, you may need to close up the frame around the images to eliminate the lines. If you have access to the original files, where the type is vector (not an image), use those files instead of the jpegs, this will usually produce a better result and if the type is black, keep it black only, not rgb.

If the final pictures are going into InDesign, why not leave the jpg and just File > Place them into InDesign? Why convert them into PDF?

What is visible in the InDesign layout when you zoom in really close?

Is the line you are seeing the edge of the graphic? What happens when you click the center doughnut to select the graphic in the frame? Does the same line show up then? What happens when you pick up the white arrow Direct Selection tool to select the graphic in the frame? Does doing so reveal the light line you are describing?

When I do it shows lines on both top and bottom of image.

No, I don't know why you do not see the line in InDesign.
