    A little background: I stupidly bought a used mattress from someone before I really heard about the risk of bed bugs. Now I'm paranoid about it possibly being infected. I've had the mattress for a few days and checked all over for black marks or anything and found nothing.

    The second day I had it, I noticed reddish-brown stains showed up ~9:00 pm while I was sitting on the bed. I tried to smudge them out at first so I don't have a picture of them as they were, oops, just the smudged ones.

    Stains:

    Am worried this could be a shell (or just a dead leaf):
