Dear people

What do you think of the sentences below? Is the indicative/subjunctive correct here, or should the other form be used?

No sé qué vaya a pasar.
Nadie sabe lo que va a pasar.

Thanks in advance

    The reason being, if I'm not mistaken, that, although "No sé" does contain a negation (thus it should take a subjunctive), the dependent clause is treated as an indirect question, and thus it takes the indicative mood.
