    I found this is my bed, and was wondering if it could be what I think it is? (Which is a bedbug).
    Please let me know.
    Thank you.

    No it's not. For example antennae to long with that thickness on the ends what bed bugs don't have.

    It's a true bug and looks like a nymph but not a bed bug. Possibly a rhopalid bug, As Mawiwala noted above, the antennae are heavier than those of bed bugs and also these end in a knob, also something bed bug antennae do not have.
