    I killed this bug on my bug and i wanted to know if it was a bed bug.
    Sorry, if it turns out to not be one, i'm just really paranoid and this is the first insect I've actually seen on my bed since my suspicion of bed bugs

    No, not a bed bug, but a beetle. You took the picture and stayed too far away from it. A close-up that is in focus would be a best to post if you can and want a better ID.
