You did research, right? You know that pits can be dog aggressive, right? You need to hire a behaviorist, not a trainer, to assess this situation. Until you get one, keep them separated. You are right to be concerned. Never allow them to be together unsupervised. Crate & rotate for management until you get someone to help you.
Internet tips will NOT be good enough.

Pitbulls (and to a lesser extend labs) are known for Dog Aggression. The risks of fights breaking out are higher if the dogs are the same gender or unaltered... Unfortunately, yours are both.

Get a behaviorist AND a trainer lined up, as even with a behaviorist you're going to need extensive obedience training to manage a household with two DA dogs. Then develop a household schedule for separate socialization, exercise and feeding because crate & rotate will now be the foundation of your daily dog care. And get them both neutered asap.
