Well, you either got one or the other. If you've got nuts, no pun intended, then you've got a standard machined bolt. If you have a super course thread and no nut, then it's a lag bolt.

If there is no nut, then you've probably got lag bolts, so I would suggest trying to get a pry bar or drive some shims under the head to tension the threads, then try to back it out with a wrench, adding more pressure with the prybar/shims as you twist the bolt until it backs out on its own.
