Problem Solved .It was my trusted devices.Unlock phone when Connected to gear 3 watch.Disconnected to the watch as a trusted device and my fingerprint scanner& pin code works now to lock/unlock phone.

@Bandyandy5: If you have not done so already, please perform a Soft Reset on the Phone by pressing the Volume Down and Power buttons together for around 10 seconds until the phone restarts. If your issue persists, please can you confirm if your original security options are in place by going to Settings > Lock Screen & Security > Screen Lock Type.

Have you tried removing the lock screen security options and re-adding them to see if this helps?
