Hamlet realizes fairly quickly that both Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have visited him at the request of the king.  Hamlet seems to know them rather well becasue he can discern this simply fomr their strange looks.  At this point in the play, Hamlet has learned that Claudius may have been the one to have murdered his father, and Hamlet is already upset about his mother's hasty marriage - to his uncle no less. This seeming deception of two of his friends only adds to Hamlet distrust.
