You should choose Random points equally ditributed over angle (-pi,0)
and sqrt-Random distibuted over 0, r^2. The following plot wiil do

surface = Graphics[{Thickness[0.0079], Line[{{-3.1, 0}, {3, 0}}]}];
halfcir =
Graphics[{Thickness[0.0079], Circle[{0, 0}, 0.6, {Pi, 2*Pi}]}];
randpoints = Table[Graphics[
{PointSize[0.002],
Point[
Sqrt[Random[Real, {0, 0.36}]]*(({Cos[#], Sin[#]} &)
[Random[Real, {-\[Pi], 0}]])
]}], {300}];

Show[surface, halfcir, randpoints, AspectRatio -> Automatic]
