    Definitely not a bed bug. Looks like it might be a cigarette beetle or drugstore beetle. Wait for an expert to confirm the specific ID.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Not a cigarette beetle. Could be a drugstore beetle, but can't say for sure due to picture quality and positioning of beetle.

    The beetle might not be a stored product pest such as the drugstore beetle, Stegobium paniceum. It could be a related species, possibly Anobium punctatum, the common furniture beetle. Or at any rate an anobiine ptinid beetle. Can't really say for sure due to beetle position and quality of image.
