I've installed Fedora 28 beta and I get the following messages when running bash (starting a terminal).

bash: eval: line 42: syntax error near unexpected token `('

I think it's running a script with a path which has brackets, but I can't find the script. The messages go away with the --norc options so it's probably the .bashrc files but the file in my home diractory is empty and I don't want to touch the file in /etc. It's also weird that I didn't get the error before updating.

Any ideas?

Is the .bashrc empty or it has the default content? Check your .bash_profile as well. Have you ever modified the bash login scripts?
