Alaikum salaam.

If semen comes out of you whilst you are asleep, even though you see bad scenes in your dream, then this does not count as masturbation and it is not a sin. You just have to do ghusl and ensure your clothes and the bed sheets are washed islamically.
​The masturbation which is a big sin is when one purposely does something to have semen come out of him.

May the All-Merciful assist you.
