    I'm not an expert either but I don't think that that's en earwig. 100% not a bed bug though.

    Looks like a female earwig.

    This is good to know. I've seen this exact creature now and again in my house and I always thought that they weren't earwigs because the side opposite the pinchers never seemed to match any of the photos.
