Do i have to fill a 1098-T if my mom is claiming me too?

No, she will put all information from form 1098 T on her return, because she is claiming you.  For more information on this, please review the rules in IRS Publication 970, tax benefits for education. 

Summarized it states;

The parents will claim the student as a dependent on the parent's tax return and:

The parents will claim all scholarships, grants, tuition payments, and the student's 1098-T on the parent's tax return and:

The parents will claim all educational tax credits that qualify.

If the parent is claiming the student as a dependent, the student can still file their own tax return to try and receive the taxes they paid for that year.  Whenever they are completing their taxes, the student must select the option that states; 'I can be claimed on someone else's return' (see screen shot from Turbo Tax online).  Remember, however, that who claims the student as a dependent will be the one who claim qualified education expenses for education or credit.
